runRequest is meant to be "as stupi as possible" leaving any
cleverness to uppper layers (ie HttpURLConnection does the redirection
- when you use it through the URLConnection API)

Note that this is not entirely true when filters are used (ie the
AUthFilter will retry the request behind the runRequest'caller back)
