Committed libwww timer problems and other fixes

I have just committed a slew of changes to the libwww CVS repository. It
now seems much more stable when handling a large set of connections to
different servers. For example, I can now run the robot in test mode
against a broad sweep instead on a single server and it seems to be
reasonable stable.

As usual, you can get them from

	http://db.w3.org/Library/latest.sql

and see how to recompile at

  /libwww/Library/src/HTHost.c frystyk 1999-01-22 14:01:24
  Fixed timer problems that gave confusion about who should
  delete timers. Now they are always deleted by the creater. This also
  affects some of the problems that people may have experienced with
  lack of timeouts. Ths fix also involves a pending queue fix to the
  Host manager when running out of available sockets
  
* /libwww/Library/src/HTBufWrt.c frystyk 1999-01-22 14:02:19
  /libwww/Library/src/HTChannl.c frystyk 1999-01-22 14:02:19
  Committing timer fixes to these two files as well - cont from
  before

* /libwww/Library/src/HTHome.html frystyk 1999-01-22 13:58:38
  /libwww/Library/src/HTHome.c frystyk 1999-01-22 13:58:38
  Added the function HTParseFormInput to handle HTML form input
  of the type a=b in various incarnations. The command line tool and the
  postform sample app now use this function. It should fix the problem
  reported by Jeremy Bettis.

* /libwww/Library/src/HTML.c frystyk 1999-01-22 13:54:17
  /libwww/Library/src/HText.c frystyk 1999-01-22 13:54:17
  Made sure that the HTextImp object is deleted (but not the HText
  object) when finished parsing. The app is responsible for deleting the
  HText object

* /libwww/Library/src/HTProfil.c frystyk 1999-01-22 13:53:05
  Changed default max sockets to 32 as some OSes can't handle very many
