A couple of comments:

- the patch needs a test (and docs too)
- are you sure ignoring POSTed data is the right thing to do? Shouldn't we forbid it instead?
- I think it would be nice to reference the RFC number somewhere
- not sure why you raise IOError on a bad URL; I would say ValueError is the right exception here

+1 on the general idea, by the way.
