glibwww will probably be death in some months. I plan two release a
minor solving bug release shortly
but besides that I have talked with several people and we want to drop
glibwww in favour of a new release of
ghttp. Until now, very few people had been interested in glibwww and the
ones we were need to find a better solution
than the one libwww provides. 

The reasons? libwww is an ugly library, not reliable and that has many
memory problems...
