OK. Then I do propose an easy way to issue a non-interactive HTTP POST.
As to how, I'm probably the wrong guy to propose something. My first
thought was that, if a list were assigned to location.href, then the
base URL would be the first element and the URL-encoded data the
second. This maps to how curl and Python work. But a problem here is
that POST is only implicit, so what about PUT, DELETE, etc.?
Perhaps one could make a case that POST is important enough to be
included in the most basic idiom, along with GET, and for other stuff
there's an advanced idiom?
