Q: Why not just use reqwest/actix-web/mio_httpc?

A: Reqwest API sucks, actix-web client comes with lots of server code and mio_httpc is unknown beast to me(I just found out about it when created Yukikaze).

Q: I see some moon runes and anime picture. Are you one of these disgusting weebs?

A: Obviously yes ;)

Q: Why so many inlines? Are you this stupid to use pre-mature optimizations!?

A: Yes, I'm stupid enough because compiler doesn't want inline methods across crates by default(unless you turn on LTO)

Q: Why builder methods panic? Why don't you store error in builder and return it when finishing creating request?

A: I believe in normal cases you are not supposed to create invalid requests so I consider such errors as quite exceptional
