ISSUE-36: Can applications create new containers? 

We cannot make a collection by POSTing a doument on a collection, since that
creates a resource. We therefore would need a different HTTP Method to do this.

I suggest MKCOL from WebDAV, since it is already defined.


   http://restpatterns.org/HTTP_Methods/MKCOL


The content of the body, could be Triples that describe things
that can be put into the collection. As it happens that is not
defined yet it seems, so we can define it.

  Any thoughts on that?  I'll try implementing that.
