Unlikely is perhaps overstating it, but it's an implementation detail
which I wouldn't've used and don't seem to require it.  It's easier that 
confusing people I'd've thought.

that's fine.

Hmm, could you not just make the lookup return the last or something? the 
lookup is just a convenience after all.

The other question I forgot I had in this one is what happens with 30*'s  Are 
they followed automagically, or does the client have to make the request anew?  
(XMLHTTPRequest objects follow 30*'s)

Yep sounds good, I'd only encourage SVGMedia type ones as required though, 
anything else is a bonus!

Yes, certain horrible things need removing...
