     - bin/lwp-request: mention GET, POST and HEAD in the POD, fixed the
       discrepancies between the synopsis, the POD description and the cmdline
       help (-C and -P options, plus short options summary), also added some
       standard markup in POD synopsis (Closes: #396968, #408426, #354905)

     links). Removed relevant parts of debian/rules, too.
