sorry for the late response, I was quite busy fixing/merging issues with 
some Maven plugins I'd like to roll this month.

Mid Jan looks good actually, though I like to emphasize on three things 
or want, at least, mention them and hear your opinion guys:

0. I need to clarify a few things about how stuff is implemented/works 
in HttpClient and will do this with a seperate mail.

1. Since I am going to rewrite a lot of stuff, I would prefer people to 
test that first in a beta before we/you announce that GA.

2. Though, I have already discussed some stuff privately with Oleg, I'd 
like to completely rename the Windows-named classes to SSPI.., which 
reflects the implementation behind, just like GSS... As far as I can 
see, this API is very new in 4.4 and a rename shouldn't cause too much 
harm. This would break ABI though. If anyone of you is concerned about 
that I can of course deprecate those classes only (in the module).
