> This is actually where I'd like to head with the client API. I had started my own HTTP client about 2 days before Sven announced Zinc, so it made more sense contribute to his project. My initial work was a subclass off of ProtocolClient and was kind of monolithic, so my first steps have been to make things mesh nicely with Zinc.
