Description

The web-client howto indicates that if you don't care about the body of a response, you should either use a HEAD request or call IResponse.deliverBody with a protocol that immediately calls IProducer.stopProducing on the transport. Otherwise, the connection will be held open.

The former isn't possible, if the request being made isn't a C{GET} request, so for those cases, a helper function should be provided, to make it easy to close the connection.
