This specific issue wasn't about the 'storing' (the 'write') part.  
I was specifically concerned with the reading part. 

e.g. from GET /bugs, I'll get a list of links to individual bugs, but, then I need to cycle through the list to find out about each one. But, if I do GET /bugs?inline=bugs:has_bug, then I can make this more efficient. One question is related to issue.32: how can I discover this (rather then have query string construction algorithms).
