Yes, that's true. Mostly because the SRU server was implemented inside
the Adlib Internet Server (which also handles OAI, Adlib searches, image
resizing, etc.). The infrastructure has code that makes dealing with
POST and GET one and the same thing for the upper layers, so this wasn't
a thing I spent a second even thinking about...

What reasons are there for not allowing it, then? I'm all for allowing
it (mostly because of the GET length problem).
