This has *nothing* to do with HTTP (the focus of HttpClient) at all - 
that is only HTML. HTTP is much more than transporting HTML!

HTML Parsers are already available for Java. No need for us to build one 
into HttpClient. If anything then a HTTP Parses should go as a new 
project under Commons or even Jakarta.
