Personably I've found the HTTP client in OTP unusable and I'd
never put it in a production environment unless the set of URLs to
GET was finite and all GETs were tested.
It hangs on bad input instead of returning an error last
time I tried it. Not ready for production use.

ibrowse in jungerl works much better. I don't think there are any
easy ways to get to ibrowse short of checking out the jungerl
tree and ripping it out though.
