I think you could do this via requests directly. It could be done in emacs: https://github.com/tkf/emacs-request

or python: http://docs.python-requests.org/en/latest/

In your case you could have a block like this:

#+BEGIN_SRC python
import requests
headers = {"Authorization": "Basic YmVfcmVzdF9hZG1",
           "Accept-Encoding": "application/xml"}
r = requests.get("http://myserver/rest/dothis", headers=headers)
print r.text

Recently, I found [1] which works quite well. However, I need to
open a new buffer into restclient-mode to execute requests.

Wouldn't it be nice if Org-mode could integrate this tool so that,
e.g., following example could be invoked via babel?

    GET http://myserver/rest/dothis
    Authorization: Basic YmVfcmVzdF9hZG1
    Accept-Encoding: application/xml

    : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
    : <faultInfo xmlns="http://example.com/product/model">
    :   <...>
    : </faultInfo>

I also proposed this as a request on [2] but the author is not using
Org-mode on a regular basis.

So: is there any volunteer who wants to complete Org-mode's
featureset even more?
