I am considering including http.lisp in the contributed sources, packaging
it differently, but adding the original license. This would allow the test
suite to 1) download quicklisp, sandbox it and test a set of libraries, 2)
download the ansi test suite and run it and 3) download additional sets of
software (Maxima, fricas, etc). In 2) and 3) I might have to set up a
mirror for the repositories making nightly tarballs, but I believe it is
