I've thought about this further and it would be sufficient for any of 
the GET/POST/BLAH methods to accept a URL (or whatever they have now) 
and, in addition, an IP address. The intent would be that the 
resolution process is done outside the HTTPClient library and the info 
is simply passed in. The library would then not call any InetAddress 
methods if the address is passed in.

I'll look into it, but I investigated this a year or so ago and then 
there was no way to replace the client side resolver. Regardless, one 
of the main reasons I would do this would be to avoid synchronous 
lookups. Even if the Java API was pluggable, it does not support 
asynchronous lookups.
