All right, I'm confused. I thought this was a new site for http://unicorn.bogomips.org/ , the Rack HTTP server. This was further reinforced by the use of the angry unicorn logo which GitHub used in their article on the Unicorn Rack HTTP server [1].

If I'm reading this right, though, this is an HTTP client library. The docs[2] say

This looks like a case of two different pieces of software, both of which speak HTTP, and both named Unicorn.
