I must be missing something - how does this stop a double POST to / 
replicate et al caused by a browser stack or middleware error?

Hi, I'd like to do $THING. I know that $SOLUTION_A and $SOLUTION_B  
will do it very easily and for a very reasonable price, but I don't  
want to use $SOLUTION_A or $SOLUTION_B because $VAGUE_REASON and  
$CONTRADICTORY_REASON. Instead, I'd like your under-informed ideas on  
how to achieve my $POORLY_CONCEIVED_AMBITIONS using Linux, duct tape,  
an iPod, and hours and hours of my precious time.
