Some web services redirect requests to multiple servers to load balance.  The redirect returns a 302 to the CF Server.  By default most software allows the redirection, but the method is changed to GET.  This doesn't allow for redirection for load balancing when a POST is required.  I would like an additional argument added to CFHTTP to retain_method_on_redirection=YES which would not change the request to a GET.
