perhaps. :)

The more correct synopsis would add "but Digest isn't practical"

Here the text to add is "or an entity in 'front of' the server
terminating the SSL connection."

I don't think POE works without first doing a GET so that you
can get the POE-Links URL to tell you where to go if you're
POST doesn't get a response.  Nor does POE have a strong way
to prevent anyone else from getting the response, either.
