We suspend the post data only when we receive a 307, or do you mean we
shouldn't suspend in this case too?

The --method patch has opened a can of worms and now we have to consider
literally any HTTP method and how it make more sense for the users.
I think that very few people are going to abuse --method with
TRACE/OPTIONS and we can consider these cases later, if they really hurt
someone.  On the other hand, it will be nice to handle separately HEAD.
