Thanks a lot, that's what I thought, however I'm somewhat lost looking at
how to extend this class, without actually trying to branch the
HttpComponents, but rather introducing a new proxy provider behavior. My
problem is as follows:

* MainClientExec.establishRoute is package-private, so I would have to place
my overriding components in impl.execchain and I'd have to create bundle
patches given that I'm using OSGI.
* MainClientExec.createTunnelToProxy is private and cannot be overwritten at
* MainClientExec is hard-instantiated in
- it's not a pluggable service. I could override
HttpClientBuilder.decorateMainExec and created some decorator ClientExec but
for that I would need to copy all the logic from the MainClientExec related
to route handling and delegate the rest - seems quite cumbersome and would
require quite a lot of validation testing.

Am I missing something major?

Thanks for your help!
