Ticket #4703 enhancement new
twisted.web.client.Agent.request 'method' argument should default to 'GET', somehow
|Reported by:||glyph||Owned by:|
getPage(url) implies the GET method. Agent.request should do the same. It is tedious and error-prone to have to type out 'GET' over and over again if you want to fetch a bunch of URLs, especially in examples.
(Generally speaking, Agent should strive to be as convenient as possible when compared with getPage, and should not give developers any reasons to cleave to the old and crappy way of doing web client stuff.)
