just as a follow-up: while client-controlled paging (requesting specific
page sizes and specific pages) gets a little more involved when it should
be done RESTfully (because these request parameters probably should be
exposed via URI templates), the "cheap" solution is much easier. for
server-controlled paging, there simply can be "next" and "previous" links
(and a few more) exposed in a way similar to
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5005 . in this case, no templates are
required, but clients still can happily page through results (but they
cannot control the paging process, or request specific pages).
