The answer isn't arrogant, and we aren't *preventing* you from gaining
access to that information.  The implementation which we use for
extracting the form data from the request is the standard Python
'cgi.py' module:  it doesn't preserve that information, so we can't pass
it on to you.  That we accept this state of affairs is a sign that we
don't share your itch, not that we doubt you have it.

Given that this is open source, you *can* modify ZPublisher such that it
uses a different mechanism to parse the form data, and are free to
submit back such a patch to be included in a future Zope release.
