[PD] how to do a http request from pd to a webserver and get the results

I don't have an answer for this, but the idea of a external that creates a 
two-way socket could be very useful (eg for a full OSC spec implimentation that 
involves receiving queries and sending replies back..) I'm sure for a host for 
other things. Netsend and netreceive make sense as network versions of send and 
receive, but a [socket] or something would be much more flexible for more 
complex network stuff.

Any ideas on the subject?
