Add processData option to JQuery post

It's common for web services to expect data to be POSTed in the request body and not as URL parameters. This cannot be done via $.post right now, so you have to resort to using $.ajax with type 'POST'.

This option should be added to $.post

Find: processData

This might be a useful feature to extend to the $.post() shorthand

Maybe there's something I don't get but there is no correlation between appending data to the url and processData. ProcessData only indicates the data needs to be url-encoded IF and WHEN it is not a string. If you pass a string to $.post() as your data parameter then it WILL be sent in the request body. Are we sure we're not dealing with a request that cannot be dealt with using a POST and hence end up being dealed with as a GET (cross-domain jsonp & script notably).

Yeah, this is quite confusing - if a POST is happening then it should be in the post body, please create a new ticket with a test case if this is not the case.
