well, if servers don't do it, then maybe they cannot safely do updates,
but maybe they are designed as read-only servers anyway? we don't have to
constrain HTTP here at all: if you want to get the job done, you have to
use HTTP properly. if you're not doing this, you may just have set up a
server with some serious limitations/issues.
