Netclient is your friend:

It is a 100% O'Caml implementation of HTTP/1.1. Take the "experimental"
version, it is quite stable. You get not only keepalives, but also
pipelining and parallel handling of several requests.

The only drawback is that it always downloads into memory.

I guess this library is the reason why there isn't a libwww binding...
