Actually, I got my answer from the PHP list. Someone looked it up and
it's not in W3C spec for XHTML. Only GET/POST are. People want to put
PUT/DELETE in, but it's not supported.

This was just to make a simple test script for myself anyway. I wound
up just using curl via PHP to PUT the file to the work.php script to
mess around with it.
