  yes it sounds cool. The question is "does it makes sense to incorporate
it as part of the platform at this point ?"
    - how many apps other than Soup itself are using it ?
    - how easilly can it replace gnome-http
    - I assume the Licence is LGPL or compatible
    - I assume there is some guarantee of having it maintained

  Is this a separate module in CVS ? Is it packaged separately ? How
much overlap with gnome-vfs HTTP module ?

Lots of questions, little time, even less data for the analysis.
