not exactly what you want but close and i  know it works...

            response_header = {"Content-type" => "text/xml"}
            response_header.merge headers
            ht =Net::HTTP.start(self.host,self.port)
            url = self.url # + "/" + self.topic
             puts "posting to: #{self.host}: #{self.port} #{url}  
message: #{msg.to_xml}"
            r=ht.post(url,msg.to_xml,response_header)

            puts "result: #{r.to_s}"
            r
