HTTP POST support. It's not totally obvious to me how to design the
API for that. But it's worth noting that the pipe: module has
semantics more like POST than GET, really.

Also, replace uses of Method in the API with Module (or perhaps the
slightly less accurate but perhaps more clear Protocol or
ProtocolHandler) , because it's kind of confusing as it is. (http is a
protocol or URI scheme, GET is a method).
