that is a valid point but currently we don't make a HTTP UNO API
available based on commons-httpclient so removing it has no impact there.

we also bundle various C++ libraries like curl and neon that should make
a better basis for a HTTP API if somebody wanted to implement that.

guess there is no better workaround for BASIC programmers currently;
presumably Python and Java and CLR have HTTP libraries easily available.
