HTTPClient appears to be essentially dead, which means I'd like to remove it and avoid the cognitive load of having pointless stuff in the image that can trap the unwary.

So far as I can tell it was a wrapper for sockets that might be actual sockets of browser-plugin-pseudo-socket-things; since we can't run in a browser any more it has no real purpose. Unless I'm wrong about the browser thing, we could clean out some cruft and simplify our socket story a bit.
