Thanks a lot for the pointers. Let me just pick the HTTP related code from
the whole pull request and see how things work as of now. After a quick
skim over the code, it seems like it is written as a general way to support
all sort of HTTP method, not only to support POST. That is, the payload can
we receive and send?  Is it how we want this to be? Is there something else
in requirement?

Also, will it be possible to have to get real-time support(IRC or anything)
from you so that I tackle this authorship issues and others if needed any?

No worries. Let me know when you stumble across it ;).

I think you are talking about this:
