Patch for mythdownloadmanager for improved POST redirect compatibility

Per the specs, and de-facto implementations, redirects for POSTs are (for status codes 301, 302, and 303) turned into GETs (302 was ambiguous in the original spec, and all (well, almost all) browsers turned a 302 into a GET, so later an explicit 303 was defined that defined that redirected POSTs should be implemented as GETs, but the 302 behavior was codified). A 307 says to rePOST, but it also requires asking the submitter to re-verify, so the code will not (automatically) redirect.

Note that the existing code which attempted to redirect a POST to a POST was somewhat flawed (not only by spec), but because the post data was no longer available to rePOST with.
