My mistake, I thought using the http module was the correct API.

A lot of new-ish code uses the http module:

  http://google.com/codesearch?q=http%3Arequest+lang%3Aerlang

In addition to the inets docs, some of the inets code also uses the
http module (src/inets_app/inets_service.erl, test/httpc_SUITE.erl,
and test/httpc_cookie_SUITE.erl). Does that need patching?
