Yuk! So, to pipeline SSL the client/server would need to know
that there is no difference in the authentication requirements for
all of the paths being passed in during the pipelining operation.
I have never built a system that had such constraints but I now
see how that would be a major issue with SSL pipelining...

The question would be if there was some way to start pipelining
and if the authentication requirements require a separate connection,
could that be requested for those requests (again, yuck!)
