OK, wild suggestion here:
Like we abstract our GUI/Event System/Graphic System/etc in 'xp' code
and implement this abstraction on win32 unix qnx mac etc, we could also
abstract our *IO system*. We could then implement this abstraction on
*nix using gsf, and for example on win32 with wininet.dll, etc.
This would fit very nicely in the general code _structure_ we have now.
> Windows system have a wininet.dll library that provides the same services
> (different API) that libcurl does. To use libcurl to read remote file under
> win32 is unnecessary. Not to mention that libcurl will not honor any possible
> proxy or Internet settings that you have defined in your win32 system.

> systems, but also not adding unnecesary overhead on the win32.
