[Grok-dev] Long running HTTP requests

Hi List,

I've put together a simple resource management app using REST, that
allows a client to GET a url to request access to a resource. If the
resource is busy, it returns 0, otherwise 1. They can POST to the same
url to release the resource. I am considering changing it to simply
hold the GET open until the resource is available, which could take
several (<10) hours. Any idea if there would be a problem with this?
