[erlang-questions] What lib to use for http requests

Sure, would be idiot to implement obsolete or superseded RFCs .
but is it smart to have dozen of «same» applications/modules that cannot be compared each other, or even against the IETF reference ?
Some inefficient entropy. With brilliant works fulling cimetary.
However, being RFC compliant is not enough, as far RFC texts are full of SHOULD and SHOULD NOT...
But easier to say «RFC compliant with option this, but not option that.»
Erlang community is growing, and contributors are now numerous.
Could be a great motivation, each one its own RFC.

MHO.
