Going through what you said earlier, regarding posting XML to Ampache,
what protocol / request method will be used in such a scenario? In a
REST API, I will get a response to a GET request. I suppose we can use
POST with content type text/xml, but then How will ampache know if a
request(query) has been given or not?
