Tunnelling HTTP Connections

For services not bound to the public interface of a machine, tunnelling is a quite nice SSH feature. It allows to use a remote service like it is running at the local machine. This concept is used in the HTTP client returned by the NewHttpClient function. It is a common net/http.Client, but all requests are sent through the SSH connection given.
