Yes. The XMLRPC spec defines only the POST request; DocXMLRPCServer
extends the definition so a GET request is interpreted as a documentation
query. Any other method remains undefined and generates a "501 Unsupported
method (xxx)" response.
If you do need HEAD, extend DocXMLRPCRequestHandler to define a do_HEAD
method (same as do_GET but without actually sending the response entity).
