  Description     : Manages persistent connections using Net::HTTP

Using persistent HTTP connections can dramatically increase the speed of HTTP.
Creating a new HTTP connection for every request involves an extra TCP
round-trip and causes TCP congestion avoidance negotiation to start over.

Net::HTTP supports persistent connections with some API methods but does not
handle reconnection gracefully.  Net::HTTP::Persistent supports reconnection
and retry according to RFC 2616.

This package is needed as a build-dependency for ruby-mechanize.
