"""
The try/except abominiation here is due to a bug
in mod_python. This should fix it.
"""
if request.method == "PUT":
# Bug fix: if _load_post_and_files has already been called, for
# example by middleware accessing request.POST, the below code to
# pretend the request is a POST instead of a PUT will be too late
# to make a difference. Also calling _load_post_and_files will result
# in the following exception:
# AttributeError: You cannot set the upload handlers after the upload has been processed.
# The fix is to check for the presence of the _post field which is set
# the first time _load_post_and_files is called (both by wsgi.py and
# modpython.py). If it's set, the request has to be 'reset' to redo
# the query value parsing in POST mode.
