Will investigate - thanks.

A couple of dilemmas both related.

The return type of the function freebaseCall is string..... would it
be helpful to specify that given that it has a side-effect (HTTP Put)

One for the RESTFUL purists that might object to a GET that has
side-effects. What HTTP method should be used to invoke this XQuery?

On reflection the function could probably use a better name.
