We either want to offer an abstraction layer with KIO, or we don't.
From what I can see data can either be put somewhere, or it can be given to a 
service to do something with it. In this regard, a HTTP POST is highly 
similar to sending mail by SMTP or calling a SOAP operation. They all do 
something with data without any guarantee to give it back to you.
