Commit 0c90e948 authored by zach's avatar zach

First volly at a Twitter-compatible API. Just working out the

detials of 1) Basic Auth and 2) dispatch to the right Action class
files to handle the requests.

You can hit it with...

	http://localhost/laconica/api/public_timeline.json

or to try Basic Auth you can try something like:

	http://nickname:password@localhost/laconica/api/statuses/friends_timeline.xml

Although that actual method isn't done yet, so it should authenticate
and then complain.
