Some servers expect what multipart data will be not included in OAuth
signature and signing it will cause authentication error.

Could you give an example on what would those be?
I took it all authenticated requests needed to be signed.

For example rails library oauth-plugin expects what multipart params will be not included in oauth signature.

Thanks for the pull request, @shir. Some thoughts:

If it's the case that a particular server implements OAuth 1 with this quirk, then I'd say that it's up to the developer to subclass and override as necessary.

However, if there's anything in the OAuth 1 spec that calls for this behavior, then it should be default, without the property.

If you have the time, I'd be interested to know if the / any OAuth 1 specs mention this behavior. If so, please feel free to send a pull request with nil parameters being used to calculate the Authorization header on multipart requests. Thanks!
