Implement XMLHttpRequest in Servo

by Manish Goregaokar for Mozilla

Currently, Servo has no AJAX support exposed to JavaScript. AJAX is an integral part of the web these days, so the lack of this feature makes Servo much less useful as a browser. The goal of this project is to have a partial implementation of the XMLHttpRequestobject -- one which is self-consistent and covers most use cases that are found today.
