Why not more general options like
--data and --data-file ?

A --data-command could be implemented later, for directly sending the output 
of a command (STDIN is may be already used to read the URL(s) from). This 
could be handy, if you want several files/data being sent in one request, using 
multipart/form-data MIME encoding.
