Don't most projects think that way?  There are some honorary
exceptions, but how often do you see "use 2.x instead" if users find a

Gump does.  There is a project descriptor for the httpclient 2.x
branch, that you could build against.

  <project name="commons-httpclient-2.0-branch">

You may find it requires commons-codec as well, though.  Not sure
about httpclient 2.0.2, which is their latest non-beta release.
