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.
