*****

* In Library/src/{HTAnchor.c,HTResponse.c}

The content encodings were not moved from the HTResponse object to the
HTAnchor object after having received a response. This caused the
information to be lost when the response object went away and only the
anchor object remained

* In Library/src/{HTBInit.c,HTBind.c,HTFWrite.c}

Changed the default file name to be used in the "save as" stream in
HTFWrite.c to either use the latter part of the URI or to compose a name
based on the information that we have about the resource like the media
type, the encoding, etc.

* In Library/src/HTEvtLst.c

Commented out adding error messages to the request object in the default
event loop as it may have gone away at the time

* In Library/src/{HTHost.c,HTHost.html,HTNet.c,HTNet.html}

Substantial fixes to the pipeline management including adding a method in
the Host object, HTHost_killPipe(..), for killing an entire pipeline
associated with a host. Also has done a lot of testing with real world and
often very buggy HTTP/1.1 servers

* In Library/src/HTReq.html

Updated description of how to get from the HTRequest object to the HTNet
object and to the HTHost object

* In Library/src/HTTCP.c

Fixed typo

* In Library/src/HTTP.c

Adding support for killing a pipeline and also the patch provided by Mike
Bennett on the memory leak in the stream stack builder

* In configure.in Library/src/wwwsys.html

Added check for sys/syslog.h. Note that automake will automatically detect
that the configure script has changed and so will run it again.
