I had never actually had the time to look into POE.  Now I have.
Looks nice.  Might even some day take the place of the LWPng that I
never found the time to finish.  You just need to get the HTTP/1.1
support going.  LWPng has a nice state machine that you might try to
borrow :-)

Anyway, this is how POE::Component::Client::HTTP fits into my rough
"get-www.activestate.com-test":

                  REAL   USER     SYS    SIZE
  ----------------------------------------------
  LWP             1.8s  0.45s   0.07s    5680 kB
  LWP::Simple     1.8s  0.15s   0.07s    4432 kB
  HTTP::GHTTP    10.9s  0.06s   0.07s    3484 kB
  HTTP::Lite     11.2s  1.56s   0.13s    5244 kB
  HTTP::Webdav    1.3s  0.01s   0.02s    4152 kB
  POE::*::HTTP    2.4s  1.97s   0.10s    6996 kB

In addition I know about LWP::ParallelUserAgent, LWPng, Net::HTTP and
IO::Socket::INET.  I'll try to write a similar tests for them too.
Are there still other perl libraries that can do HTTP that I should
look into?  Please let me know.

Gisle
