One thing I've always found odd is that it seems to be "traditional" to 
have completely separate implementations of the HTTP protocol for use 
on the server and client sides of the connection.  What I would like to 
see is a core library that models HTTP requests and responses according 
to the RFC, but that is agnostic about what they are used for - it can 
serialize both requests and response to a stream, and parse either.  It 
should then be easy to build either a client or server on top of this.
