Yes, it's definitely provided by the client. I am using PHP application 
which does just this. It's also rather well documented in HTML 4.1 
specifications on w3.org (in the FORMs section).

In the meantime, I contacted the person who wrote the Twisted http 
module and he told me that it's not working very well in the current 
implementation and it should be fixed in March.
