You can have FDO on the server side (backing an Apache REST mod) and an FDO provider for REST that can consume the RESTful data server by the server.

Then, the only question I have is what happens if you put the REST FDO provider in the backend, behind the Apache mod, and connect it to the front end of said mod. Does the Apache server disappear in a cloud of recursive smoke? :)
