[erlang-patches] Patch for PUT and DELETE inets HTTP methods support

In the times of RESTful addressing style it is a very inconvenient situation where when one wants to remove something on the server side must use 'POST' method instead of simple 'DELETE'. 

Are there any plans to widen the set of accepted HTTP methods?

As far as I have understood the inets source code, RFC (http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616.html) and the patched server responses, those few lines I am attaching should solve the problem.

Best regards,
Michal Ptaszek
