      Description

      We currently support four netaccessors: curl, winsock, socket and cfurl. And also "none" if network support is disabled.

      This makes the test matrix quite large. Additionally, with the recent push to use HTTPS everywhere, I wonder about the dangers of Xerces using its own plain HTTP implementation over sockets without any SSL support.

      Would dropping socket and winsock, and requiring curl or cfurl make sense?
