Please post where it's documented as illegal or undefined;
I've been using querystrings and posted parameters for
years, and never had any problems whatsoever.

If FieldStorage is clipping the query because there's
posted parameters, I believe it's a bug, because posted
parameters have nothing to do with the query-string,
they're independant of each other.
