Multi-connection HTTP/FTP?

	I'm trying to develop a tool for simulating multiple HTTP and FTP
clients to a server and was looking at libwww for this purpose. But from
what I can tell, it does not create multiple connections to the same client
-- at least not with mget. (As a side note, if you use mget to test FTP
downloads, all but the first connection fails.)

	For HTTP, I gather libwww creates only one connection per host and
sends all requests in sequential order through that one connection. So the
downloads are not really simultaneous when dealing with one server.

	Is there an easy way to get around this limitation and have the
libwww open up multiple HTTP/FTP connections simultaneously?
