While most people don't need POST, I do. IMHO, LWP::Simple needs a post function.

use LWP::Simple ();
*lwp_get = \&LWP::Simple::get;
*lwp_head = \&LWP::Simple::head;
When LWP::Simple's functions are used only once or twice, just let it export nothing and use the full names including the package.

<pre> tags. In fact, <pre>
tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
