Unfortunately there isn't any currently because it's something nobody
has needed yet, and doing this properly and elegantly is not easy.

There was a "http-form-posts" egg which used a port of Gauche's MIME
code for Chicken 3 which is still available from svn at

And Alex Shinn's "hato" library also includes some MIME handling code
you might want to use:
(note that the link to the docs are wrong, they should point to

The latest release of the http-client egg (v0.5, released a few days ago)
contains some hacky code to deal with multipart form posts, though.
