It treats :body as a regular urlencoded parameter.  i.e., the body of
the POST sent through to the controller is "body=the+data", when I
want it to be "the data".

There's the matter of content-type too; I left that out in hopes if
simplifying the question.  The more complete version might be:

post :create, :content_type => 'image/jpg', :body => 'the data'

But :content_type and :body are not treated as special parameters, so
I was wondering if there is some other mechanism for doing this.
