It hurts my head too. I’d rather see a SOAP interface where everything is specified by WSDL, or a RESTLog-like interface where everything is drop-dead simple.
I’d love to see a SOAP interface. I love parsing some WSDL and ending up with everything I need to use it generated for me. I’ve done it in both Java and .NET, and it’s wonderful.
Simultaneously, I would love to see a minimalistic RESTful interface.
I just hope that the major weblog software vendors go for it.
