Well, I don't want to argue that really since I have no practical
experience with HTTP_Download. But it seems like they serve different
purposes. I am not sure if the HTTP_Request2 can be used to achieve the
same. Briefly checking it seems like HTTP_Download is a helper on the
server-side to offer downloads to any HTTP client, whereas HTTP_Request2 is
a HTTP client library.
