Bug#755239: ITP: libhjkl-perl -- a specialized HTTP client

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Robin Sheat <robin@catalyst.net.nz>

* Package name    : libhjkl-perl
  Version         : 0.13
  Upstream Author : Kang-min Liu <gugod@gugod.org>
* URL             : https://metacpan.org/release/Hijk

  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : a specialized HTTP client

Hijk is a specialized HTTP Client that does nothing but transport the
response body back. It does not feature as a "user agent", but as a dumb
client. It is suitable for connecting to data servers transporting via
HTTP rather then web servers.

Most of HTTP features like proxy, redirect, Transfer-Encoding, or SSL
are not supported at all. For those requirements we already have many
good HTTP clients like HTTP::Tiny, Furl or LWP::UserAgent.
