First post - though I've followed this strangely heated debate from the 
start. Apologies if I miss the mark...

It looks to me that in including a remote http download in the unit 
test, we're effectively just testing the HttpURLConnection class (which 
we can probably assume is working).

Does the test really lose anything by not connecting to a real or mock 
http server?

A better way to test might be to add our own URL protocol 
"geronimo-test://", for example. I guess ideally we'd like to pass in a 
mockURL class, but is designated final.
