> This is assuming that the endpoint url does not change, and is going to be the same for all users.  It could be that the, say swift url, that you get is not the same as what someone else gets, based on their account, service level, or even current IP (for directing folks to the 'nearest' endpoint).

I'm only assuming the endpoint wouldn't change for a single user.  Is that wrong?  I know the endpoint is constant for Rackspace customers (with the account number as part of the URL), but what about in general?

The use case I'm talking about would be someone building something that uses the API for some other purpose and hides it from the end user.  For example, if someone made a Twitpic clone and uploaded everyone's pictures to a single swift account.
