--- Comment #9 from Gabriel Wicke <gwi...@wikimedia.org> ---
Some additional info about the POST size issue on save:

To check the POST request size, I looked at the Content-Size header in the
request headers once that completed (request to api.php started when opening
the save dialog).

The issue does not seem to be specific to any particular page. At
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenOffice.org?veaction=edit for example an
initial
load of 215k turns into a 3.6mb POST.

Possible remedies:
* use gzip compression for the POST request body
* use multipart/form-data POST encoding instead of
application/x-ww-form-urlencoded to avoid percent encoding overhead
* send HTML as a separate POST variable without JSON wrapper to avoid JSON
escaping, in particular of quotes
