WebHttpBinding - my unexpected Hack Week outcome

Novell had the second "Hack Week". At the beginning I never thought that I was going to implement WebHttpBinding from .NET 3.5 WCF (I was planning to play around some XSLT stuff but soon changed my mind). Actually I have to say, it is not an outcome from just a week - from our patch mail lists I seem to have spent about two weeks. So, I'm cheating ;-)

Anyhow, the Hack Week is over, and now I have partly implemented WebHttpBinding and its family, with a (simple) sample pair of a client and a server that sort of work.

Note that it is (and our WCF classes are) immature and not ready to fly yet.

For details

Want to know the details? Are you serious? OK ... so we have:

... and couple of other bits (such as WebChannelFactory or WebServiceHost, which are really cosmetic).

We still don't have couple of things (I am enthusiastic for explaining how we are incomplete :/) :

Here I haven't mentioned everything in System.ServiceModel.Syndication namespace, which is already done.

I also have current class status of System.ServiceModel.Web.dll in Olive.
