http-twiddle.el, or, SLIME for HTTP

The year is 2007. Java and SOAP applications have taken over the internet. The default response to any HTTP request is "500 Internal server error." You, the fearless programmer, must devise a way to trick each server into not crashing on your requests, without the benefit of error messages, logs, or standard-compliance. XML whitespace tweaking? Tag reordering? MIME header reformatting? ROT13 encoding? Nobody hears your screams.

Your only chance is a powerful new weapon: http-twiddle.el.
