Hrrm, those specific lines don't seem to address our case... since we
aren't trying to read the posted info more than once... it gets read
in get_posted_cgi and stuck into $env where we that access it.

And we never use $r->content (or $r->read) any where else (well
lonauth uses it, but that'll get REDIECTed.. away, perhaps it should
be usign get_posted_cgi...)

And the docs on $r->method() and $r->method_number() seem to imply
that it only matters on $r->internal_redirect() cases, not browser
REDIRECT cases. (Which really only makies sense since redirects would
cause a new apache request cycle)

Honestly, it looks like a copy a paste from the book that I can't see a
need for..?
