If that's the case, I'm wondering should we change the GPX upload procedure
so that a GPX file is PUT in the same way that OSM-format XML is PUT in the
0.2 API? From a glance at the documentation of two HTTP clients (cURL and
the Qt HTTP API) it seems easy to use PUT to upload data, but I'm having
trouble finding documentation on how to upload whole files as the current
GPX uploader does.
