Hello all,

just in case we'll be searching for a new name to
replace HTTP Client with something that encompasses
more than just the client side, here is my suggestion:

HTTP Agent


The term "User Agent" is used frequently in RFC 2616,
and section 1.4 also mentions a "forwarding agent"
(proxy) and "receiving agent" (gateway). Section 14.46
uses the symbol "warn-agent" to refer to a server, so
these are considered agents too.

cheers,
  Roland
