  I don't care about keeping gnome-http
  I warn seriously against using libwww, unless you really need to do complex
     HTTP processing
  There is a minimal HTTP client code in libxml if you have simple needs
     and gnome-http gets removed.

On the topic of the Sep 26 deadline, libxml2-2.4.5 and libxslt-1.0.4
are the current Alpha version, unless I manage to make a new release in
the meantime (but since I'm moving next week probability is low).
