As far as I can see, the discussion is happening on many project lists, 
and on the pmc list.  You would think general@jakarta would be a better 
forum, but its quiet there.

Because this is a board "recomendation" individual projects have to make 
their own dicisions on wether to implement it or not.  HttpClients 
committers and community will have to decide to do this or not for 
HttpClient.  As HttpClient is still part of Commons, this decision could 
be defered to all of Commons, but given HttpClients top level 
aspirations, I would encourage HttpClient to make this decision on its own.
