I added support for following 302 with POST, DELETE and PUT requests  
in the version of libURL that comes with the GLX App Framework. I  
haven't documented it outside of the source code but if you need to  
use POST Sarah and a 302 is being sent then download the GLX App  
Framework files, grab the custom version of libURL and search for this  
string:

## POST, PUT, DELETE. Look for callback, otherwise we ignore.
