Works just fine for the purpose of doing <get>s... We don't require anything
fancy here. Getting files thru HTTP with timestamp works for me, and has
been for a while. I've even done simple stuff like extracting properties
from the HTTP header at the same time I'm getting a file (properties added
by a custom Jetty-based HTTP server serving meta-data about the file
downloaded). I'm not saying it doesn't indeed suck, just that I've never run
into the 'suck' part for my simple purposes (using JDK 1.4+). --DD

of course, the http stack built in to java sucks, so we need to serve 
stuff in the subset of valid http that it supports.
