Dear Raeleeny,

Kerr-ect. All of those are not only networking terms, but more specifically,
comms protocols. As they are such, they must support queries and answers. I
guess it's all hair-splitting, but if you really wanted to be pedantic, you
would use Query for database matters only, and leave it as request for
everything else. (Request <network object>) Ideally every request gets ack'd
or nak'd, failure to nak successively leads to outages :-)

GET, PUT and POST are the methods to support requests. Just about everyone
will have a different take on it though, so define your terms in the start
of the manual and just go for it.

Another newbie question (as a clever junior high teacher used to say, "It's
easy when you know it, and hard when you don't"):

Context: TCP/IP, FTP, HTTP, SNMP... protocol "requests" (?)
