  * get:Deprecated.Use the HTTP GET method. This method appends name/value
    pairs to the URL specified by action and sends this new URL to the
    server. This is the default value for backwards compatibility. This
    method has been deprecated for reasons of internationalization.

I don't understand what internationalization has to do with it,
so long as the form generates RFC-1738-compliant data...

Can someone provide some answers?  Is i18n incompatible with rfc1738 ?!?
