it doesn't make sense since reading and writing to the socket is done in 
the thread, from which the methods are called. NIO would make sense, if 
the API of HttpClient would be somehow asynchronious. That would mean 
that you can drop a "Job" into a Queue and that it's executed in the 
background. As this is not the case, using NIO doesn't make any sense.
