  I used nanohttp, because it was quick and easy, and I was already
using libXML2 anyway. We will need to support network streaming (for
NetConnection, and NetStream). I think using libcurl would be fine for
grabbing anything specified in a URL, but probably isn't suitable for
NetStream. NetStream will be handling audio and video streams over the
internet, and so will work very differently.

  How about adding a "get_url" method to server/network.cpp for this ?
Making it an adapter for grabbing files specified in URLs is a good
idea. NetStream should also work that way, since we want to support
multiple streaming protocols. (most not currently used for Flash though...)
