Its a fine line, but I can't see how network connections don't fit in as
an acceptable low level operation when we have the following in glib:

1) lexical scanner
2) xml subset parser
3) IO Channels

Even if not in glib we should be creating an official solution that
hooks nicely in to the mainloop rather than neon/curl/soup.
