Re: [Bug-wget] Syntax for RESTful scripting options

Taking this forward. I figured it would be best to merge --post-data and
--post-file commands into --method=HTTPMethod

I intend to use the following logic in merging them:

wget --method=POST [data/file] URL

The text immediately following --method=POST is first assumed to be data.
If however it does not exist in the key:value format, assume that to be a
file path and try to read that file.
If the file does not exist, return an error.

The old --post-data and --post-file commands will be kept for backward
compatibility but marked deprecated.
Please let me know if anyone has any sort of objection to this.
