Handling HTTP Request Bodies (CGIHTTPServer)

The http server modules in the standard python library have one severe
limitation:  They don't handle request bodies.

CGIHTTPServer handles POST requests but doesn't process form values
submitted by the POST, only values submitted in the query string.

Where would I find examples (preferably built on SocketServer or
BaseHTTPServer) of what's necessary to handle request bodies properly?
