Humm. But just now, nautilus depends on libwww...
I'll upload my libwww package soon. But in near future, if nautilus
removed dependency on it, I'll orphan it maybe.
Package: libwww0, libwww-dev
Description: The W3C-WWW library.
Libwww is a highly modular, general-purpose client side Web API
written in C for Unix and Windows (Win32). It's well suited for
both small and large applications, like browser/editors, robots,
batch tools, etc. Pluggable modules provided with libwww include
complete HTTP/1.1 (with caching, pipelining, PUT, POST, Digest
Authentication, deflate, etc), MySQL logging, FTP, HTML/4,
XML (expat), RDF (SiRPAC), and much more.
The purpose of libwww is to serve as a testbed for protocol experiments.
