It's hard to get any solid and comparable numbers here, HTTP is a much older 
package and it's part of the HP.

I do however think it's currently more popular (yesod, enumerator/conduit, etc.) 
and more featureful than HTTP.

HTTP is probably doing a fine job for lots of users, as long as they are happy 
with lazy io and no https without jumping through hoops, however http-conduit is 
providing a superset of this, with bonus of stream io, https, socks, and more.
