      As long as we are being brutally honest about how things work
      in *the real world*, I'll just point out that if some VP
      discovered that he couldn't edit his blog from his shiny new Nokia phone
      because the proxy server blocked PUT requests, then that proxy would
      get changed so fast it would make your eyes bleed.

      To put this in perspective we're talking about a configuration
      option on an HTTP proxy/firewall in a company that 11 years
      ago was probably running SNA over token ring. To pretend that
      things will stay the same as they are today is, at best, delusional.
