With a few details. I may be against the change which adds POST support; 
I don't know what it does, and it adds a dependency. I'm reviewing all 
changes to the 4.1.x branch, at the moment (and that big patch is giving 
me trouble).

This part of the change looks like it's fixing an issue, so I think I am 
ok with it. This should be case by case, though (please don't try to 
sneak it in a big patch).
