"""This module provides a common interface for all HTTP requests.
HttpResponse: Represents the server's response to an HTTP request. Provides
an interface identical to httplib.HTTPResponse which is the response
expected from higher level classes which use HttpClient.request.
GenericHttpClient: Provides an interface (superclass) for an object
responsible for making HTTP requests. Subclasses of this object are
used in AtomService and GDataService to make requests to the server. By
changing the http_client member object, the AtomService is able to make
HTTP requests using different logic (for example, when running on
Google App Engine, the http_client makes requests using the App Engine
urlfetch API).

HttpResponse represents the server's response to an HTTP request from
the client. The HttpClient.request method returns a httplib.HTTPResponse
object and this HttpResponse class is designed to mirror the interface
exposed by httplib.HTTPResponse.
body: A file like object, with a read() method. The body could also
be a string, and the constructor will wrap it so that will return the full string.
status: The HTTP status code as an int. Example: 200, 201, 404.
reason: The HTTP status message which follows the code. Example:
OK, Created, Not Found
headers: A dictionary containing the HTTP headers in the server's
response. A common header in the response is Content-Length.
