I don't understand what you are trying to do. HttpClient is synchronous:
a thread will block until the response for a request has been received.
If your thread has to connect to different hosts, it should still be
connected to a single host (or not at all) at any point in time. Hence,
the single connection "managed" by the SimpleConnectionManager can be
used for one host:port after another.

What am I missing?
