I can spin up another patchset. Some of the changes are probably enough 
to make it useful (for example the User patch should come before the 
Person patch to address one of you concerns).

As per _url stuff. I can do it, but I'm not sure that's what we want to 
do. This will sort of fight against the built-in support of the 
HyperlinkedModelSerializer. We'll basically have to override the 
to_representation methods of each serializer to rename "foo" fields to 
"foo_url". That's why I'd originally left out the _url fileds. Let me 
know, and I'll get a v6 sent out as soon as I can.
