Thanks for your answer.

In other words nobody knows for sure when it will be, if ever,
implemented. But nothing prevents to hope that support of http_bin
will be introduced during R13 life =)

Anyway...

People who want to get binaries from standard http-decoder can use
[{packet, raw}, binary] along with erlang:decode_packet/3 to decode a
binary.
