Subject Re: more common classes need a home

Sounds like Base64 has found a home.

What are HttpsURL and HttpURL generally used for?

The various URI classes seem to need a home.  They might be big enough 
for their own package.

Where is URLUtil?

We should probably require the various classes as a dependency.  The 
only down side being that a person has to download a lot more jars, 
etc. to get started working with HttpClient.  It's kind of nice to have 
everything in one jar.  Perhaps that could be a release option.  We 
could package everything in one jar as a "fat" release and have just 
HttpClient code as another "skinny" option.
