Because I had the methods written for network and http already (this is
just old code of mine I'm open-sourcing), and I didn't want to bother with
reading the source for hxt-curl or hxt-http (since neither has
documentation and I'm not convinced that they can do exactly what I want).

If you feel strongly about hxt-curl or hxt-http I would love to hear why!
I'm not opposed to using those instead.
