[squeak-dev] Nuking OldSocket, OldSimpleClientSocket and HTTPSocket

I'm interested in doing a little assault on the aforementioned classes.
The only reason for the existence of Old[SimpleClient]Socket is that
they're superclasses of HTTPSocket which is a beast to get rid of since
we need it for updating etc.
However, with WebClient  at hand, we can convert HTTPSocket into a
simple facade that just delegates everything to WebClient and in
addition to having a better HTTP client implementation we could also get
rid of these Old* classes.
What do people think? Is there any value in preserving the Old* classes
and HTTPSocket or should we try to take an end-run on the issue?
Obviously, there will be some tricky updating involved so I'd like to
get opinions beforehand.
