David,

This is not exactly what the outcome was. So far I have seen no evidence
of NIO offering any advantages compared to classic IO for _blocking_
HTTP, that is when the request / response content is to be produced /
consumed using OutputStream / InputStream interfaces. HttpComponents
will support NIO as a separate module for event driven (non-blocking)
HTTP API

Hope this clarifies things 

Oleg
