 * HTTP POST method.
 * <p>
 * The HTTP POST method is defined in section 9.5 of 
 * <a href="http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2616.txt">RFC2616:
 * <blockquote>
 * The POST method is used to request that the origin server accept the entity
 * enclosed in the request as a new subordinate of the resource identified by
 * the Request-URI in the Request-Line. POST is designed to allow a uniform
 * method to cover the following functions:
 * <ul>
 *   <li>Annotation of existing resources
 *   <li>Posting a message to a bulletin board, newsgroup, mailing list, or 
 *     similar group of articles</li>
 *   <li>Providing a block of data, such as the result of submitting a form,
 *     to a data-handling process</li>
 *   <li>Extending a database through an append operation
 * </ul>
 * </blockquote>
