Ah!  Requesting an HTTP URI, and getting the result back as a stream
you can read from, is built-in functionality in Java it looks like.

Presumably you would delegate a thread to listen to the connection,
and wake the thread every time it has data...?

Since no such standard functionality exists in C++, I still think the
best option is to have Parser derive from ostream, that an
request/response mechanism can use.
