I imagine lazr.restful hides functionality for this somewhere in its 
codebase. Perhaps one way forward would be to extract it? Maybe not, but 
it bears some investigation.

I am not sure I understand the proposal. Which interface would be the 
same and why would that be useful?

I think you should just think in terms of what the API should be like 
before you worry about interfaces. (though interfaces are also used to 
look up adapters here).

Sounds like a useful project!
