And a fourth alternative: https://github.com/nitroshare/qhttpengine

I guess the more interesting questions which this research project

allow this to be used in secure production code (e.g., Thiago
mentioned that QTcpSocket is fully-buffered with unlimited buffer
sizes, which seems a recipe for disaster in certain circumstances).
