Hi Lilu

Truth to be told I am not sure I like ConnManagerBuilder /
FluentClientConnManager that much. I always felt that a FluentExecutor
encapsulating DefaultHttpClient and ThreadSafeClientConnManager would
have probably been a more elegant solution. This would also enable us to
decouple HttpClient and request execution related methods from

Just a thought.

I think we have the almost essential bits already in place. From all
missing features listed in the spreadsheet only multi-threaded request
execution is really a must in my opinion. I would very much rather
prefer that you concentrated on polishing features that are already
there instead of adding more.

Please look into multi-threaded request execution as the step. As soon
as it is done we should start making plans for an official ALPHA release
of FluentHC.
