What is calling deleteItem? I assume you're not calling it directly 
through the web, correct? As to get request variables I was not aware 
that you could use parameters like that with JSON, instead you would 
look in the request.form dictionary here.

Note that methods on grok.JSON subclasses all become JSON views, which 
you may not want for deleteItem. You could prefix your method with '_' 
to make it private and non-published.

I think that publishing all methods is perhaps counterintuitive, so 
perhaps we need to look at a decorator-driven approach to publishing 
JSON and XMLRPC methods instead (I think publishing REST methods is all 
right though for grok.REST).
