The server lady wants it that way. I create signed AWS URLs that are 
secure and which access her APIs. So far we've only used POST, PUT, and 
GET. Now we've added a "log out" function and I'm supposed to send the 
URL with DELETE. She is floored that I can't do that:

"I can change it if you really don’t have DELETE, but I would find it 
surprising. If you do have it, I’d prefer to keep it as DELETE since it 
makes the most sense for the action."

Then she suggests using cURL but that won't work on mobile where we 
can't use shell.

I wouldn't know where to start with tsNetCustom(), but I'll investigate. 
Suggestions welcome, provided it works on mobile.
