HTTP Client provides significantly more wire-level control over the HTTP
transaction. If you just want to grab content from some URL, then the
java.net.* package may suffice. If you're writing an HTTP client (like
Slide, or Latka, or a SOAP client, etc.) and you begin to have an opinion
about how the transactions are handled, what information gets sent, etc.,
you quickly run into the limitations of the java.net package.
