no, you're kinda stuck with this... instead of trying to
re-write all your pages, how about creating an intermediary
page?  if you have a script passing the info before you
request the password, write that info to a page in hidden
fields and ask for the password, the POST it to the next
page... perhaps on the next page you show the information to
the user and then let the user proceed using the GET

i don't know if you *can* do this with your project, but at
least you'll be splitting the two pages up...
