I noticed every time it fails on POST I get headers in the response with 
what looks like a cache hit:

POST to http://docs.webplatform.org/t/api.php
X-Cache: HIT
X-Cache-Hits: 1

Grab the bash script I just wrote at:


And change three things at the top:
export WIKI_API='http://test.webplatform.org/t/api.php'

When I change the WIKI_API to docs.webplatform.org, it fails.  When I 
use test.webplatform.org it seems to work fine now.  Try it out! :-)
