just looking for feedback here. Alexandre Bertails wrote the read-write-web project [1],
which allows one to to GET, PUT, and POSTs of SPARQL updates. It's a good starting point 
to try out some ideas for those who like Scala.

At one point Alexandre had it so that a PUT of a new resource such as 

PUT /existing/newDir/other/file.ttl

would create 

and /existing/newDir/other/file.ttl

Then later he changed it so that one had to create resource one by one


 PUT /existing/newDir/
 PUT /existing/newDir/other/
 PUT /existing/newDir/other/file.ttl

Is there a good reason to move to that way of doing things? How do others here do this?
