ICAP, the Internet Content Adaptation Protocol, is part of an
evolving architecture that facilitates better distribution and
caching for the web.  ICAP is, in essence, a lightweight protocol for
executing a 'remote procedure call' on HTTP messages.  That is, it
allows ICAP clients to pass HTTP messages to ICAP servers for
'adaptation' -- some sort of transformation or other processing. The
server executes its transformation service on messages and sends back
responses to the client, usually with modified messages. The adapted
messages may be either HTTP requests or HTTP responses.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
