REST Semicolon

We have https://jobs.37signals.com/jobs/new;preview for example. The ;
is a valid character in URLs, so there's no reason why you should fear
this in a live application.

Yes, and plus is a valid character in e-mail addresses, yet I switched to
hyphens for my "plus-addressing" because so many Perl scripts couldn't deal
with plusses. I'd regularly give out "jay+extension@my.domain" and get
mail addressed to "jay@localhost; extension@my.domain".

So your first argument (we haven't seen any problems yet) is much more
convincing than your second (it's a valid character) :slight_smile:
