This business about (re-search-forward "^$") was just a workaround for a
url oddity -- HTTP puts some headers in the buffer, but other protocols
may not.  It would be cleaner to fix this in the URL package itself.
Then a special case for HTTP would not be needed.

I don't deeply care, but I think if something is documented as using
URLs, then it is fine to just require them.
