I'm the author of HTML::TreeBuilderX::ASP_NET. It was brought to my attention that mst was trash talking me and my module in a channel I'm banned from (because he won't let an op unban me). Logs are as follows:

Anyway, this module uses HTTP::Request::Form which uses HTML::TreeBuilder which currently has a bug in it. Otherwise, this would be a /very/ simple process.
A test case in the works is at http://gist.github.com/188669, essentially HTML::TreeBuilder doesn't associate the __EVENT* with the form so I can't generate a proper request without that data.
