THat's what I just did.

I don't quite get the documentation on how I'm supposed to tackle this.
HTTPConnection has different parameters (3 instead of 2) and some other 
issues that aren't *that* well dosumented. From what I gather I just 
can't change the constructor and be done with it....
A, well, we'll see.

It works! With URLs *without* special characters other than "/". That 
seems to be the whole problem.
