If you want to access the body of e.g. a POST, you do so with content attribute of the twisted.web.server.Request instance. This attribute is not, however, documented in the API docs, nor is it mentioned in the "Using Twisted Web" or "Twisted Web in 60 Seconds" howtos.

I don't think we should capitalize this, "Other request bodies" is fine.

Please merge!

Add documentation for the content attribute to twisted.web.iweb.IRequest. The request object has always had this attribute.
