I understand about configuring the loggers, which is what I (obviously) did with
my hack.  

I guess I wasn't really clear.  I got a bug reported in my product, that's using
HttpClient, about console spam, and it ended up being this exact situation. 
That's what they called it; console spam.  And clearly what it is.  We already
handle the "can't connect" case outselves through the exception, so  my users
were confused about why they were seeing all this 'spam' in their console.
 
My point was that there's really no need for HttpClient to be this verbose, at
the default level.  I'm arguing that the particular usages of INFO-level logging
aren't appropriate; they should be WARN.  Why do I have to fix your code, by
hacking log settings, to get a user-friendly scenario?  I'm happy with
configuring loggers during development.  That's not something I'm going to make
my users do, which means I need to do it for them.  I'm not happy about having
to go in and do specific logger tweaking like this.

And, of course, I'm worried about all the other INFO-level messages that might
leak out of here ...
