It seems that even if we do discuss more, we still have communication
problems :-)

The URL commit was great, it solved a problem - and many thanks for Craig
( or Remy ) for implementing it and to you for doing the fix in 3.3. I was
going to do it, but ( as usually lately :-) you did it faster.

My point was that URL solves only one problem - and we have 2 problems
with and https.

URL solves the problem of Apache+SSL and tomcat with no JSSE. It solves
other problems as well.

The factory is needed for people who _want_ to use JSSE or another
replacement, and with normal j.n.URL( "https"). That includes xml-soap,
jaxm, etc. The 'replacement' URL can't help in this case.

I was thinking about changing Http10Interceptor to not set the handlers (
since URLFactory makes it unnecesarry, and Http10Interceptor doesn't need
it anyway ).

But to brake the bad karma I'll vote +1 on your proposal ( especially
since I was also thinking to set it very late ) :-)


( BTW, IMHO the only way you can 'lose' is if after a vote you still
think your solution was better than what was used - and if this is the
case we all lose )
