In the current implementation there are two ways to issue requests,
depending wether you run Squeak as a plugin in a web browser or
HTTPClient tries to transparently provide these services (get, post),
but the complete variants are still implemented by class HTTPSocket.
There are a few example methods, but you can always look for  senders to
see what other people do :-)
