i don't understand japanese, but the patch is interesting as it
mentions "post-data".  can it be inferred that HTTP POST can be
used?  there are search forms on the 'net that need POST for their
CGIs instead of a simple GET, and it would be nice to able to use some
of these internet facilities, especially from within emacs-w3m search
command.  users wouldn't have to fill in forms then, but instead
could just specify the search engine and the search-term and hit

an example for this is:  http://www.ris.ripe.net/cgi-bin/lg/index.cgi
