Hasn't Ortwin (or someone) already submitted a patch that allows
HttpConnection to use a different SSLSocketFactory?  (Which in turn, allows
the caller to do anything they want with authentication, certificates, etc).
It hasn't been applied to the the source, in any case.   Since the code is
already done (though not AFAIK propagated up into HttpConnectionManager or
Http[Multi]Client), is not intrusive, it would seem useful to apply it now.

The change is absolutely needed for US-export JSSE, since we can't override
what SSLSocketFactory.getDefault() returns.

Cheers etc, Simon
