I agree. Although I usually find it much more convenient/clear to deal
with HTTP headers as a `dict`, it should probably be an optional layer
on top of the bytey reality.

FWIW here's what I've been using in some real-world (if not
"industrial strength") apps:


- There are some simplifying assumptions.
- It's the accretion of what I've found useful.
- This is some of my older Racket code. I'd probably write some of it
differently now. But I'll leave it be since someone of Jay's caliber
is about to do something in this area and for Racket itself. ;)
