version 0.3


    use HTTP::Body::Pairs;

    my $body = HTTP::Body->new(...);
    for ($body->pairs) {
        my ($key, $val) = @$_;
        # ... 


Adds functionality to HTTP::Body for retaining order information from the
parsed http body.

=head1 METHODS

=head2 flat_pairs

Returns the ordered pairs as a flat list, e.g. ('foo', 'fooval', 'foo',
'fooval2', 'bar', 'barval');

=head2 pairs

Returns the ordered pairs as a list of array refs, e.g. (['foo', 'fooval'],
['foo', 'fooval2'], ['bar', 'barval']).


You don't normally need to know the order parameters came in.  Usually if you
need order at all, you only need to know the order for a particular param.
That being the case, the extra storage overhead isn't warranted in HTTP::Body.
This is for the odd case where you do need the order.
