I'm using matrix parameters for any filtering of collection resources
myself. This has the benefit of working when accessing subresources too.
This is less interesting for paging data, but handy for other types of
filtering. Sadly, Jersey has less than optimal support for matrix parameters
unless they occur on the last path segment ( It's workable as is though.;color=yellow/parts/
