Description

Call value method to an instance of Net::HTTPResponse it raises Net::HTTPServerException in case of HTTP response status code is 4xx.

But HTTP response status code 4xx means "Client error response" not "Server response" so I think that's wrong naming.

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Status#Client_error_responses

Therefore, I think it's maybe specifications bug, but it cause breaking changes in many ruby programs to change exception name.

I propose to create Net::HTTPClientException as alias of the Net::HTTPServerException for compatibility.
