Note also that "fat" http wagon can also support https protocol.

I have add getSupportedProtocols() method to wagon  for handling such
situtaion when a wagon can handle more then one protcol.
This allowed to have arbitary role hints (e.g. lightwieigh-http) and
WagonManger was querying wagons to discover available protocols.
For unknown reason this method was removed. 

You may also read my proposal how this can be partially fixed in a different
way (support for https must be sovled differently):

Implementationt of "component rankings" is quite trivial and this is
something which exists in other component frameworks like osgi
for handling such situations.
