Hi Russell,

One approach for managing users via HTTP would be to use Alice (
http://alicetheapp.com/). This provides a RESTful management interface for
Rabbit, and includes commands for creating and deleting users (

Another approach (and I suggest this in an academic sense rather than a
practical one) would be to access the BQL plugin via the HTTP RPC plugin.
