Dancer::Serializer ignoring content for DELETE method #965

Dancer::Serializer skips the deserialization of content for DELETE:

sub process_request {
return $request
unless $request->is_put || $request->is_post || $request->is_patch;

IMO, this is not the case for standard url-encoded content, i.e. it is a divergence within Dancer.
content in DELETE is not explicitely forbidden by the RFC; and it makes sense for `writing' methods such as DELETE.

I agree. The latest draft of the RFC explicit say that the behavior for content is not forbidden, merely unspecified: http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-httpbis-p2-semantics-24#section-4.3.5

I'll put in a patch for the next release.

thanks -- also generally for maintaining that nice framework!
Note: Dancer2 has the same issue, IMO.
