This looks like a nice library. You have clearly encountered the same
pain points as I while working with other HTTP-based libraries, and you
seem to have come up with solutions similar to those found in the
Boost.Http project [1].

It may be a good idea if we joined the two projects together. Would you
consider such an option?

Last year, the Boost.Http project went through a formal Boost review.
The summary [2] shows what the Boost community expects from a HTTP
library. In order to address one of these expectations, we have a
Boost Summer of Code project this year for a HTTP parser.
