Well, I would have enhanced the segment.rb to accept an array or an single
id, so users can do /api/0.3/segment/1,2,3,4 but at least your way is
similar to node and "multi" ;-)

I think Steve is on its way to replace the current server code with a ruby
on rails implementation, which would also have an other database scheme,
making your effort obsolete. :-?

On the other hand: If the rails stuff takes a bit before it is ripe for

I didn't see any rails stuff in subversion yet. When can we expect the
first Ruby on Rails Alpha in Subversion? Can I help coding?
