I don't think there is sufficient reason to remove it now it has been
released.  I think it was a minor point, anyway: nobody replied to my
original request for comments on this issue, and I don't think it really
breaks the protocol-independence of Request any more than add_data or
add_header do.

I won't go into why that method was removed again in a patch uploaded to
the tracker (but not applied to CVS) after 2.2.3 was released, because
this thread would never end.

My sincere apologies again to everyone for so thoroughly messing up these
redirect patches.
