The whole idea of the patch is that there should be
no extra code to do this :) If there are more methods
that should be included, those who need it should
speak up.

Maybe `inet:setopts(Socket, [{packet, http_methods_as_lists}])`
is some middle ground?

(Note that the atom name is just to make the purpose clear :)
