  Hum, I would guess xend_post can be used to call xend on calls not related
to domains (for example all calls coming from xend_node_op() though there
is only a few).
  At that point content should carry some kind of error message, 
I guess if you want to really try to refine the error number you would
have to look in the string retuned back. Immediately labelling it as a
domain not found error sounds a bit wrong to me. The POST operation could
have failed too for some other reason. Unfortunately except poking into
content for the returned string I don't see a way to disambiguate there.

  Hum, this wasn't really an oversight, I didn't want to loose the 
HTTP error code that early, I agree it's a bit confusing as the function
is said to returns the HTTP return code or -1 in case or error, if
you loose the return code then http2unix can't do its job.

  Some cleanup is in order but I would not be too radical there.
