  Hi,

  The description for test http-request-012 in the XProc test
suite tells that "This test checks to see if an p:http-request
preserves cookies across an HTTP redirect."

  Besides the cookies (I've already told that point in a
previous email) I wonder if an HTTP redirect should be followed
automatically by the processor.  For instance, some Google APIs
use a 302 for authentification purpose in some cases.  I don't
say it is a good design, but I don't think this is a use case
we could ignore.

  Regards,
