Are you suggesting making the above sub-modules part of MINA itself?  I 
don't like this idea as stated in my previous messages.  I don't like 
tying the release of MINA to the release of HTTP protocol handlers and 
vice versa.

I very much like the idea of extracting common functionality between an 
HTTP server and HTTP client and having both the client and server depend 
on the common module.

After giving it a lot of thought, I'm of the opinion more now than ever 
that we should make async-httpclient part of AsyncWeb.  They have too 
much in common to keep them separate IMO.  There's no reason that 
AsyncWeb should be a server only project and IIRC, there were plans made 
a while ago to create a client for AsyncWeb.  Such a move would also 
give us a good incentive to finally get AsyncWeb migrated over to MINA.
