Not at all obscure. A number of applications/packages can aribitrarily
perform POSTs or GETs. Curl, LWP and the above-mentioned Wget all support
POSTing without going via a form. In fact, all the form does is set up
the name/value pairs that the UA then submits to the server either via a
GET or a POST.
