A weak answer. Yes, it supports them. But they've never really been  
tested. The problem is that so few http servers support PUT and  
DELETE. Usually the same functionality is provided using GET or POST  
in conjunction with some server side process such as CGI or php.

If you run into trouble, drop a line.
