I am currently looking into Erlang because I need a web server front
end that multiplexes many external connections to one HTTP backend
server on a single persistent HTTP/1.1 connection.  I was about to ask
in this list if there are any http client and server libraries that I
could use, and if I understand your message correctly, the HTTP packet
modes are just what I need.  So:  I can't be stirred up, but I'd
really like to play around with this, so if you can point me to source
code or anything else that might help me understand of to put sockets
into HTTP packet mode, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,
Hans
