I was trying to get GET, POST and other Apache::TestRequest methods to
accept a pre-existing HTTP::Request object, rather than pass arguments
that will construct one.

The reason, I was trying to use HTML::TreeBuilder and
HTTP::Request::Form to fill-out a form and submit that, rather than raw
POST, e.g.:
have you tried mech for this? I haven't but have always wanted to

http://search.cpan.org/dist/WWW-Mechanize/
What difference does it make?
There's some great syntactic sugar that make submitting forms relatively
painless. I've used it in my A::T programs by grabbing the port number
from the config hash and used a WWW::Mechanize->new object to do the calls.
Though it bypasses the A-T infrastructure, so if you are trying to rely
on any of the features A-T provides, you can't. Which is probably OK for
most people anyway.
