I'm considering dropping ByteArray support. That is, removing support for  
it from send() and removing responseBody for now. At this point it's not  
really clear what the future of ByteArray is and it seems nobody is  
driving that work or implementing this feature from XMLHttpRequest Level 2.

It would be nice to have access to the raw byte stream, as authors  
currently use ugly hacks to get to it, but higher level support for byte  
streams is somewhat of a prerequisite.
