Well, I can say with certainty that I won't have the time nor energy  
to bring this into a usable state anytime soon (speak: not this  
year).  I think it's unlikely that Jonas will, either.  Our work was  
a quick hack, meant mainly as a proof of concept.  Doing it well  
would require work and more knowledge of the HTTP protocol than I  
have, ATM.  I agree that it would be valuable to the community, but  
it's not gonna be me.

I wonder, though, what happened to the curl bindings for Haskell?   
This was a Summer of Code project last year.  Also Johan Tibell  
expressed some interest in getting bytestrings for HTTP.
