If we step back a bit, are the following statements correct (we want to
save application-specific settings for the SmartHouses app)?

   - We should make an HTTP POST request to the cloud-based Flow Manager --
   the URL is https://flowmanager.gpii.net/save/%token;
   - The data part of the above request should contain preferences in the
   exact same format that a GET request to the Preferences Server would return;

Also, will this do an overwrite or a merge?
