- Rumors are Anthony is writing a non-sucky HTTP client. (is this
true?). J. Simms (slyphon) mentioned something about writing one to me a few weeks ago but I didn't hear anything after. This should be coordinated so the API for the client and server is as similar as possible.
I have something that Works For Me. It makes sense to me (from an API point of view), and, more importantly for my current use-cases, works with urllib's Request objects, which means you can drop ClientForm on top of it directly, and it Just Works. This is good. It also works on top of a UDP transport, which the current http client does not. While HTTP-over-UDP is an Abomination In The Eyes of Great Cthulu, it's also used in some sick and warped protocols, which I need to support.
