Module documentation for 0.1.0

Addition to the http-client and http-client-tls libraries, that restricts the HTTP servers that can be used.

This is useful when a security policy needs to eg, prevent connections to HTTP servers on localhost or a local network, or only allow connections to a specific HTTP server.

It handles restricting redirects as well as the initial HTTP connection, and it also guards against DNS poisoning attacks.
