That's not convenient. It would be easier for me to pass a special
argument in the URL that says "use this default post data". I'm using
the POST data because it doesn't follow the "param=value" format.

I use POST data because it isn't parameters - in this case I'm using it
to pass XML, and I have used it to pass raw binary data.

So, just off the top of my head, maybe a www-post type that takes a URL
and a file containing the actual POST data to use?

Thanks very much.
