Convenient and portable, but buggy as hell - we used it in Varnish to
begin with but had to ditch it due to a combination of design flaws and
bugs.  It also suffers from creeping featuritis - the latest version
includes a DNS resolver and a full HTTP implementation...  it's only a
matter of time before it grows a lisp interpreter and a mail reader.
