New submission from Will Boyce <me at willboyce.com>:

I think it would be both sensible and useful if the `http.client` library exposed a "runnable" interface (similar to `http.server`). I would suggest keeping it simple, for example:

python -m http.client <url>
python -m http.client -o <file> <url>
