in reply to LWP::UserAgent subclass to make it follow redirects after POST (like Netscape)

The latest LWP::UserAgent allows the behavior of redirect_ok to be overridden using the requests_redirectable method.

$ua->requests_redirectable( ); # to read $ua->requests_redirectable( \@requests ); # to set This reads or sets the object's list of request names that $ua->redirect_ok(...) will allow redirection for. By default, this is ['GET', 'HEAD'], as per RFC 2068. To change to include 'POST', consider: push @{ $ua->requests_redirectable }, 'POST'; $ua->redirect_ok($prospective_request) This method is called by request() before it tries to follow a redirection to the request in $prospective_request. This should return a true value if this redirection is permissible. The default implementation will return FALSE unless the method is in the object's requests_redirectable list, FALSE if the proposed redirection is to a "file://..." URL, and TRUE otherwise. Subclasses might want to override this. (This method's behavior in previous versions was simply to return TRUE for anything except POST requests).
