We are trying to code an application that needs to send some binary
data from javascript to a http server. The server is expecting to
receive the data in the body of the request, and for the body to not
include anything other than the raw data. In the old world you would
do this with the sendAsBinary function, available at least in Firefox.
How would you do the same thing with XHR2?

   cheers, --Toni
