It was just a note about your example -- the functions were registering
handlers using the M_GET|M_POST symbols, whereas we should provide a way
for handlers to register any token as a method.

The ideal mechanism for handling both methods and header field names
is to have enumerated symbols for unparsed, each recognized name, and
unrecognized.  The server could then check to see if the field
is parsed and use the enumerate as the key into a hash table, with
non-standard names being a linked list under the unrecognized category.
