I'm just visiting here since i've got an insanely amount of work, but
i'v two comments.

1) Eclipse?, really?

2) I'm not pretty sure about "if (trans->port != 80)", it'll work fine
in most cases but there is a border case when it'll not (Yeah, i know.
I'm anal), the case is when you are going through ssl by port 80 (Yeah
ok, shouldn't happen but you never know). I think the safest way is
append port number always, it won't hurt anyway.
