[Haskell-cafe] HTTP Redirect With HTTPS Rejected

The problem is that any page that that responds with 301.302,303 or
307 and redirects to an "https" is rejected by the library.

The code that does the rejection is in "Network.Browser" on line 865.
It only accepts "http:". Why was this design decision made? It makes
it impossible for me to use this library for my project.
