Subject Re: Compatible Cookie Parsing

The possibility of regexp should wait untill after 2.0.  I think that 
some use of regular expressions would greatly simplify large blocks of 
HttpClient code.  There are several different choices for regexp 
packages, which needs to be discussed at some point.  My feeling is that 
it should be a 3.0 feature as opposed to a 2.1 feature but others may 
have good reason to differ.
