remote_form_for does not work with method = :get

It seems that remote_form_for does not work with method = :get since
it does not change the prototype call. Is this a bug?

Not a bug, Don't use gets on any type of form submission. There is a
very interesting history on the topic

I think there are plenty of form submissions where get's make sense
(search engine queries, and other small form submissions that should
be bookmarkable). I know the URL can only store a limited amount of
data so this might get some people messed up.

I stand corrected! Yes.. should have qualified that forms which effect
any server side state besides caching should not be accessible via a
get.. my bad... apologies. I am not sure why Rails is putting the
hammer down in this case..
