The problem here is that this would work great for someone who believes in
separation, but someone who wants these things compbined would need to
have this line in every bit of code.
I think the way to do it would be to somehow provide either behaviour
without additional code, e.g. as an argument to some __init__.
I also think that the combined should be default, with the query string
overriding posted data.
