Really?  I know "world-wide web" (capitalized or not) is a ridiculously
over-used, over-broad term, but what's the alternative?  If an HTTP
client library isn't about "the web", then what the heck is it about?

(BTW, whoever said that "web.client" and "web.server" are better names
than "web.http" is right.  I think.  So far I've agreed with every idea
I've seen on this sig, including the mutually contradicting ones.  ;-)
