I don't currently use ibrowse but I can say something about httpc; I
don't think there's been a release of OTP since 2008 where it hasn't
had at least one serious bug. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
Two times I've had to roll back to older versions of OTP until I could
get/make a patch. Last time was with the httpc memory leak in R13B04.
