There is currently no way to access the content of request in Skylark. This is wrong, because sometimes, the request body can contain important information. The information is actually read by Http class, but it is not directly accessible to the user. Therefore I suggest to add this one simple method:

const String& Http::GetContent() const {
    return content;

My actual usecase: I am trying to write a method that will accept "web hook" initiated from gitlab instance when someone pushes to the repository. Gitlab can be instructed to send a request to any url, but it is always POST request, where body contains JSON data describing the pushed commits and Content-Type is application/json. So right now, there is no way to get the data, because Skylark only reads content if Content-Type is one of application/x-www-form-urlencoded* or multipart/*.

Good idea, but I rather used "GetRequestContent" to avoid confusion with response content (which now is referred to as 'Content'...)
