Very good point. I second the vote to use MIME encodings. However, this
doesn't preclude using the encoding we have now under POST with a simple
MIME header. Then we can easily move to more complex forms like
multipart/mixed (example below).

A simple form example:
POST /hyplan/sanders.html HTTP/1.0
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-type: application/x-www-textform


A complex example (with an audio part):
POST /hyplan/sanders.html HTTP/1.0
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-type: multipart/mixed; boundary="unique string"

--unique string
Content-Type: application/x-www-textform

--unique string
Content-Type: audio/basic
Content-Transfer-Encoding: BASE64

--unique string--
