Adrian,

I will happily provide most of the content for the SSL guide. Unfortunately it 
may take me a while, though, as I am quite busy doing those unpleasant things 
called earning a living. (The consulting business appears to be picking up a 
bit here in Europe, and my bosses occasionally want me to get some stuff done 
in return for keeping me on their payroll). I would really appreciate if could 
just massage the article language- and style-wise, correct my Russki English 
and make sure the content is actually readable and clear enough for an average 
HttpClient user. I have a notoriously bad record of writing documentation.

As far as preemptive authentication goes, it can be controlled on a per HTTP 
state basis. The HttpState class reads the default value from 
the 'httpclient.authentication.preemtive' upon initialization. Once the 
HttpState object is instantiated, the preemptive authentication can be 
activated / deactivated with the following method:

HttpState#setAuthenticationPreemtive(boolean)
