I'm not asking for an HTTP library. I'm asking for it to be utterly
trivial to

        1) Establish a connection to a remote site
        2) Write some data over that connection
        3) Read some data from that connection
        4) Terminate the connection

And I'd like those 4 bullets to take about 4 lines of code. It
doesn't need perfect error handling, it doesn't need to handle
redirects, it just needs to do the obvious thing in an obvious way.
