[re: retrying POST/PUT etc]

If we loosened the language of "Expect: 100-continue", that could
be used to solve the problem:  There is no race in retrying if you
do not receive the "100 Continue" from the server.

Presently a "MUST NOT" prevents using "Expect: 100-continue" for non-body
methods, that would have to be relaxed.
