Sandbox Transactions via REST api

How do I specify that a "send" transaction is for testing purposes? I'm writing a web app to send money via the REST api at /oauth/rest/transactions/send. The old SOAP api had different URLs for test and production, but I see no mention of how to accomplish this using REST.

I'm sorry to be asking this because I'm sure the answer is out there somewhere. On the other hand, if there is a published answer, will you please add or link to it from the page about the rest API?

Many thanks ~~

@Tyler: Our current REST API doesn't actually allow for test specific transactions. However, we've recently announced ( that we'll be rebuilding our API very soon, and will include a test true/false boolean on every API method. For now, my best advice is to simply move cents around... The minimum transaction amount is $0.01, and with $0.00 transaction fee, that should be pretty easy to do...
