Redirect after POST behavior in LWP::UserAgent differs from Netscape's?
don't know what the HTTP RFC says, but I guess it wouldn't matter, since Netscape's has to be the de-facto
The RFC says that allowing a redirect to a POST is unsafe and that
clients shouldn't do it. To do so is evil and guaranteed to
act weird with all browsers. Some will convert to GET style
and happily send your data to the error page you got because
the CGI is broken. Others ask and some fail silently.
I think that you will find people rather unhappy with
you offering to break compliance with a standard. Make sure
the patch you offer is both optional and defaults to off.
Sarcasm about Netscape being "standard" removed
