I can't comment on whether these patches are good code in themselves.  
However, is it really a good idea to require all development on http to  
require the same development on luahttp?

that seems like an unnecessary barrier to improving the http interface.

the luahttp interface is already broken (e.g. pl_delete not implemented,  
stop/play doesn't work properly, regular use/access of the luahttp  
interface by a remote app quickly crashes vlc).

It would be great if someone would fix all this - but it doesn't seem  
smart to turn down work on the http interface just because the contributor  
doesn't have the skill or inclination to work on the luahttp interface too.



(speaking for myself and a hundred thousand ish people who use the oldhttp  
interface through my apps)
