Right now you have to override Request or patch its get_method() method to be able to send HTTP requests where the method is not GET or POST.

This is making some assumptions on what the users wants to do with the request. The way get_method guesses the method is good enough in most cases, but I think it would be good to let advanced developers provide their own method when they build a request.  This would avoid unnecessary boiler-plate code to be able to customize the method.
