fwiw, CX::CRUD::REST uses:


I use 0 (zero) as my reserved PK value since seq PKs start at 1 and zero evaluates as
false in Perl.

 my ($self, $c, $oid) = @_;
 if (!$oid) {
   # could be absent or zero, either is fine
   # ...

Also, I adopted drolsky's suggestion of /create_form instead of /create in order to keep
the RESTful no-verb style URIs.
