Have you tested this recently, Pierre? I've been using the 2.5 engine
extensively on Windows (with IIS) and on OS X (with Apache) for CGI
and haven't encountered any problems with POST. (As long as you're
careful about reading in the data from stdin.) In fact, I've found it
The only hitch I've found is with IIS on Windows, where it's a good
idea to put a short wait (20 milliseconds) before the "end startup"
line in the script (this is not just for POST but GET as well).
I'd be interested to hear of other people's experience.
