| Ah. True. Those things probably ought to be options.

Oops. Brain cramp. The method, href, status-only, and override-mimetype
*attributes* are on the ***c***:http-request element, not the step.

That element is expected to be the document element of the request
sent on the input port.

Having p:http-request and c:http-request may be asking for trouble.
