Pipelining use would require changing the state machine in ICS component. At 
first glance I don't think it is too much difficult to implement. But 
performance would be enhanced only when using threads to serve each request 
in the HTTP server component. The thread has to be used not for the entire 
client instance but for HTTP request processing only so that pipelining 
could start different threads to execute each request. Of course 
serialization would be necessary to send the results in the correct order.

Is there any client which make use of pipelining ? I doubt !
