Kindly add an example, preferably right there at the top of the man
page, of how one would use this module in real life: in a real net
connection situation!

Currently one only sees the part after the GET etc. has been stripped
off, and one has to be smart enough to know at what point we are taking
over, which we are not.

Indeed GET is probably not a HTTP header because it doesn't have a colon
after it, and surely there is an RFC that says so, but I am offline at
the moment. However, without thinking about it one might also assume it
is sort of like a HTTP header... so the man page should be real
explicit, and not depend on one reading other man pages, etc. Thanks.
