I'm still working on the merge.  It's a lot of work.  There are a lot of
very big differences between the AHC codec and the AsyncWeb codec.  The
AsyncWeb codec is designed to be independent of the client/server that
uses it while the AHC codec is tightly coupled to the AHC client.
Refactoring AHC to use the AsyncWeb codec has been challenging.

It will be a while before the merge is complete.

I'm of the opinion that we should use MINA 2.0.  I think AsyncWeb will
draw a lot of attention to MINA which will help us work out any kinks in
MINA 2.0.  MINA 2.0 also has a lot of new features that can be utilized
to minimize the number of threads needed for MINA apps.
