These methods allow you to work with web_request params in a more convenient and faster manner. 

web_request timer:  (micros_average = 209.930000)
getparam timer: (micros_average = 130.580000)

Sample Usage

getparams // map containing all get params
postparams // map containing all post params

getparam('test') // value of all get params named test joined by break
getparam('test',1) // value of first instance of get param named test
getparam('test',2) // value of second instance of get param named test
getparam('test',-count) // return the number of get param instances named test

postparam('test') // value of all post params named test joined by break
postparam('test',1) // value of first instance of post param named test
postparam('test',2) // value of second instance of post param named test
postparam('test',-count) // return the number of post param instances named test

define getparam(name::string,-count) 	=> (getparams->find(#name) || staticarray)->size
define postparam(name::string,-count) 	=> (postparams->find(#name) || staticarray)->size

-count added.

Thanks for suggestion.

Adding a count

Great value in these additions!
A humble suggestion is to expand with a count signature:

getparam('name', -count)
-> 3
