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.
