Thanks you both for the feedback.  Indeed, my first patch doesn't
consider this case.

RFC 2606 doesn't seem very clear about it, and I can't find anywhere
that PUT/OPTIONS/ANYTHING should be handled differently than POST wrt
redirections.  I don't see why suspending a PUT request would be
incorrect.  Darshit, do you have any pointer?
