Why will it break backward compatibility? The --method option has just been
pushed, not released as yet. As long as we implement this before the next
release of Wget, I don't see why we may not edit that code.

I am not suggesting that we change the working of --post-file and
--post-data commands. Unlike the patch I just submitted, we could could
de-couple the --post-file, --post-data method and the --body-file
--body-data methods, so that the older --post-file/data methods work in
exactly the same way, but only the NEW --body- methods change.

The file should be read in binary mode and sent as-is. However, I am unsure
if wget should do any filtering of filetypes. At most, we could prevent the
file from being an executable binary. (ELF in Linux, Win32 EXE in Windows,
