Thanks for the pointer.

I evaluated it and it seems not that good for my requirements
because I need it mainly for documenting stuff/issues/...

With request.el, I need lots of lines per call whereas restclient.el
needs only three lines which can be written, read, adopted pretty

This would be completely OK to me.

Unfortunately, cygwin does not come with "python-requests" and I
failed at installing "pip" on my Windows machine [1] :-(

Probably restclient.el has also a unique feature which is neat for
my purpose: pretty printing XML responses.

So I guess I have to stick with my current method which is using the
*scratch* buffer and manually switching to restclient-mode and
copy&paste the request and the results from/to my Org-mode buffers.

However, thanks for the great links!

  1. "python get-pip.py" runs without error message but then I can
     not execute nor find pip(.exe) at all :-(
