Its true that redirects to another host are very common.  HttpMethod is 
very anal about not redirecting to a new host or port or protocol.  The 
RFCs certainly allow that.  There was state information that made it 
unrealistic to forward outside the current connection.

But a lot has changed, there is no "session" concept anymore.  This 
functionality should be relatively easy to implement.  Any takers?

I've created a bug report for this:
