Well, it's a good test that the connection actually still works. The 
100-Continue handshake involves a complete request/response roundtrip. So you 
are confident that the connection (which possibly comes from a pool) is still 
alive. If the handshake fails, you can still re-establish the connection. Then 
after the handshake you still have the virgin stream and can send it. This 
allows you to retry as often as you want.
