It's a little more clear. But then;
What advantage would the Delegating Channel have over, say, HttpModules (using aspnet compatibility)?
And, more importantly, Why can I not 'hook' into the pipeline with a completely asynchronous process? Logging is a prime example, I wouldn't want this to be part of the sequential code-path at all.
With REST, we are moving to a model of our web application which no longer posts the entire page (asp.net) but does light-weight async http requests to the server, but it does do more of them! I want to interfere as little as possible with the pipeline.
Ideally, only security would be in there in our case.
Thx in advance for contemplating this with me.
