@cj you must store it and guard it like the precious, precious resource that it is...

@cj I have more than one chunk of code that immediately copies r.Body into bytes.Buffer.
@tedu @cj I think most of us have that exact same code.
@cj @tedu It might end up like the `if err != nil` discussion. A proposal was put forth to optionally eliminate that piece of copy and paste and all of a sudden an army of go developers appeared to fight for the existence of that code. "It adds clarity!
