Yes. That would rather be stream_UrlNew() though.

If you need to include body in the HTTP POST request, you are pretty screwed 
since access_New() and stream_UrlNew() have no provisions for sending data, 
only for receiving it. I suppose you do need a body, right?

You may want to factor out the code from modules/misc/audioscrobbler.c into a 
reusable function instead... That seems more tractable.
