WebClient provides a simple yet complete HTTP client implementation.

To view the documentation evaluate:

	HelpBrowser openOn: WebClientHelp.

	WebClient httpGet: 'http://www.squeak.org/'.
	WebClient httpPost: 'http://www.squeak.org/' content:'Hello Squeak' type: 'text/plain'.

WebClient is included in the base image since April 2015 and thus with Squeak 4.6.
