I don't think, there is any library that fits better into our requirements.
So, if using libcurl with its current limitations is undesirable, I have
another proposal. We may create a new, extendable http api, with our
implementation. When libcurl (or any other library) will gain required
features, we will switch to it.

Current API is horrible to use when making more complex requests (it
requires manually built requests).
