The abundance of methods and hierarchy depth of various servers from "Internet Protocols and Support" section makes it extremely hard to navigate information. You need a strong OOP background to be able to use this doc effectively, as examples are not intuitive otherwise.

Usually you need a decent IDE (such as Eclipse) to get a picture of class hierarchy and a table of all available methods with a mark where they were inherited from.

Such table (at least Class Hierarchy view screenshot from Eclipse) should be available in reference for descendant classes.

May I ask why?

1. No time
2. Looks complicated

Lacking a clearer description of exactly what should be changed and with an official warning in the docs against using the http.server module in production, I'm going to go ahead and close the issue (which happened to be the last issue with "languishing" status).
