I've found a couple of packages that claim to integrate the curl library 
into ruby. Which one is the standard library?

Also the reason I am asking is because I did some tests and came to find 
out that curl is quite a bit faster than the HTTP library. Is this true, 
maybe my tests were distorted, but curl seemed to be quite a bit faster 
in initializing the connection and downloading.

Would it be smart of me to switch from Net::HTTP to curl? Because a 
tenth of a second is precious in my application.

Thanks for your help.
