How does your request look like? Note that we use POST in the edit form, so 
things should be fine. If this is not working for you, I would write a custom 
view maybe.

I doubt it, but it would be nice, if you could write one.

See the SchoolTool REST interface. It does all those type of things. The tinyu 
bit longer answer is: Develop a view class that implements a method called 
"POST" and then register this method as a view for IHTTPRequest.
