Hi everybody,

I am thinking about a topic of my thesis in the next month. While working on a 
project using OpenLayers, I asked myself if it's possible to send a WMS 
GetMap-Request via HTTP-POST to include a SLD.
I have searched for this problem via google, the mailing-lists and in the 
examples of OL, but the only way to use SLDs in a GetMap-Request I could find 
is via url to a file or in a HTTP-GET url, which has limited length.
The idea of my tutor and me is to realize a WMS GetMap-Request via HTTP-POST 
to be able to include longer SLDs.

What are you thinking about this idea? Or is it absolutely impossible?
