Sounds good. I'll submit a patch (or you can, if you prefer).

Regards,

You should be using the URI class to parse and assemble URLs;
there's no
need to duplicate that functionality in net/http. URI
provides address
and port accessors. Also, if you want an easy wrapper around net/http
and uri, there's already open-uri.

(Also, I've contributed some improved documentation for
net/http which
will hopefully make it to ruby-doc.org soon.)
