The "if let" constructs I added to find out what was happening. I
could use one of the several wrappers around the HTTP get/et. al.,
but I want to understand myself what's happening before I trust
In the playground the extraction from NSData works and the large
(56K?) string is printed. In the OS X app the String() fails and I
don't understand why.
Why does the String() creation in the OS X app fail?
(I'm using the "static func" construct inside a "struct" because
this is the only way I have found to create tests without error.)
(I've cross posted this to three groups total to get an answer.)
