Hello,

Very broadly speaking, you need to add a post method to the MirrorHandler  
class, and in that method:

 - mung the request in a similar fashion to the get method
 - avoid caching the request (POST requests are not idempotent)
 - forward the altered request to the destination server
 - return the response to the original client


The labnol google-proxy githubpage lists a twitter account for support 
contact - http://twitter.com/labnol - so you could try asking there for more 
help.  Also check the docs for webapp2 and and Google App Engine 
(http://developers.google.com/appengine).  

Have fun,

Kev
