doesn't need an HTML page or form though, can be used with any uri
accepting POST (not GET though afaik) - there's something in this
thought though, got legs as some would say.

even better if wrapped in a quick bash script so that you can simply:
./microblog "thinking about wrapping curl -F in a quick bash script"
in fact you could knock up a pretty lightweight social command line in
next to no time using this approach, then define that as a text based
api and hook in to it with other system processes / custom apps.. again,
good thinking, and obviously 100% nicer coupled with webid.
