Can you expand on what you think you're saying here? I don't get the
solution you two are discussing:

1) I think Ben is talking about discovering server capabilities while
you are talking about sending client capabilities to the server.
2) HTTP is stateless, meaning that stuff from a previous request
should not 'stick'.

These two things are what's confusing me. I hope you understand me
enough to make me understand you :-)

bye,

Erik.
