The REST Starter Kit was targeted at WCF 3.5. I am wondering if it is still needed with WCF 4?

I have basically the same question?... The state of REST development with WCF 4.0 and VS 2010 is really confusing. The home page for it is a unclear mix of it in different versions for different platforms. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/netframework/cc950529.aspx
Where are the WCF Samples for REST? WCF team is pretty good at providing dozens of samples covering many uses. I can't find this for REST based webservices. Specifically I'm looking for one using REST services with Silverlight. I got the WebServiceHost
to work with Unity pretty well and inject my dependancies. And it's cool I have no more svc files to manage. In fact with a bit of reflection I can probably automate the routing table setup. Now want to apply a custom authentication class and work out how
to share my contracts with Silverlight. I hope I don't have to go back to using the project linker from the old Prism example...
(I plan on using DataServices for readonly reports/grids but my API for submitting data is not so data orientated. And RIA services is pretty nasty looking trap IMHO)
WCF REST Starter Kit

I wound up using a mix of the latest 4.0 template, REST Starter Kit, and WCF REST Contrib to get all of the functionality I was looking for. However, my biggest concern is that the latter two are not first class citizens in the dev environment. Microsoft
is making progress here, but still has a way to go... and this is doubly important because I am finding the whole REST thing far more complicated and confusing than classic WCF SOAP.
