[darcs-users] do we still need libwww support?

Hi Eric.

Libwww support was introduced only because of pipelining. Now libcurl
supports pipelining well enough (more or less) and is a better choice
from any point I can think of.

Moreover libwww is not maintained for several years (even Debian plans
to remove it). So I see no reason to keep it.

Unless someone really uses it.

Regards,
  Dmitry
