Thanks, Ben.  I know there's a lot of material here, so thanks for
taking the time to give it another look.

The httpbis working group has two main products, and this is the
first: the revision of http 1.1, RFC 2616.

The second, the development of http 2.0, is what you'd been hoping
that this was.  That project is moving along very well, with excellent
editors and a great deal of participation and enthusiasm.
