Thanks, Yusuf.  libwww is such a big library, I
completely missed that call.

If the library designers are listening, shouldn't the
body write delay be attached to the request object
instead of being library-wide?

My reasoning is that I'm writing a utility function that
uses libwww; that utility function may be combined into
an application that itself uses libwww---and I shouldn't
be able to affect the app's delays, and having to
restore the old delay values is a bit object-disoriented.

Take care,
