I think a lot of this can be provided with expect, with some extra Tcl
code for socket handling. If we're talking about the basis for a test
suite. expect is a good candidate. Now of course, writing the tests is
the hard part. There are lots of options to test, and the cases that
break seem to always be the ones that would be the last cases we would
think to test for!

If we're talking about something generic enough to apply to protocols
besides HTTP, I think this would get waaay too complicated, at which
point using real code would be faster and easier.
