Even if we fix HTTPSocket (and I have added a couple fixes for 3.9 to allow it to get things like css files), we still don't have https without doing an openssl plugin or writing our own ssl socket layer in Smalltalk. The plugin makes more sense - and since we are already doing a plugin - we might as well get the most capability from it that we can.
I've certainly got some uses for it and look forward to its release.
