Exactly, it caches connections to remote servers.

The motivation is... HTTP/1.1. Kept alive connections are good for the
network and are improving performances, after a connection, Jigsaw will
try to keep it open and to reuse it for future requests, the cache has a
maximum number of connections used, and will garbage collect the LRU ones.
Hope this helps,
