So this should work today, I believe, if you POST to the URL
http://host:port/query?mode=asynchronous . Let me know if it doesn't.

Yes, any bug or mis-feature should have a ticket. That's not a promise that
it'll get fixed, of course, but if we don't track it it certainly won't.

Is it a problem to change the request mode? (Serious question.) Both of
those servlets should not, I don't believe, ever require a lengthy
submission, and so to me it doesn't seem unreasonable that they'd only
respond to GET. But perhaps there are other factors here I'm not
