       Feersum::Connection - HTTP connection encapsulation

       For a streaming response:

	   Feersum->endjinn->request_handler(sub {
	       my $req = shift;	# this is a Feersum::Connection	object
	       my $env = $req->env();
	       my $w = $req->start_streaming(200, ['Content-Type' => 'text/plain']);
	       # then immediately or after some	time:
	       $w->write("Ergrates ");

       For a response with a Content-Length header:

	   Feersum->endjinn->request_handler(sub {
	       my $req = shift;	# this is a Feersum::Connection	object
	       my $env = $req->env();
	       $req->start_whole_response(200, ['Content-Type' => 'text/plain']);
	       $req->write_whole_body(\"Ergrates FTW.");

       Encapsulates an HTTP connection to Feersum.  It's roughly analogous to
       an "Apache::Request" or "Apache2::Connection" object, but differs
       significantly in	functionality.

       Until Keep-Alive	functionality is supported (if ever) this means	that a
       connection is also a request.

       See Feersum for more examples on	usage.

       "my $env	= $req->env()"
	   Obtain an environment hash.	This hash contains the same entries as
	   for a PSGI handler environment hash.	 See Feersum for details on
	   the contents.

	   This	is a method instead of a parameter so that future versions of
	   Feersum can request a slice of the hash for speed.

       "my $w =	$req->start_streaming($code, \@headers)"
	   A full HTTP header section is sent with "Transfer-Encoding:
	   chunked" (or	"Connection: close" for	HTTP/1.0 clients).

	   Returns a "Feersum::Connection::Writer" handle which	should be used
	   to complete the response.  See Feersum::Connection::Handle for

       "$req->send_response($code, \@headers, $body)"
       "$req->send_response($code, \@headers, \@body)"
	   Respond with	a full HTTP header (including "Content-Length")	and

	   Returns the number of bytes calculated for the body.

	   Force the response to use HTTP/1.0 or HTTP/1.1, respectively.

	   Normally, if	the request was	made with 1.1 then Feersum uses
	   HTTP/1.1 for	the response, otherwise	HTTP/1.0 is used (this
	   includes requests made with the HTTP	"0.9" non-declaration).

	   For streaming under HTTP/1.1	"Transfer-Encoding: chunked" is	used,
	   otherwise a "Connection: close" stream-style	is used	(with the
	   usual non-guarantees	about delivery).  You may know about certain
	   user-agents that support/don't-support T-E:chunked, so this is how
	   you can override that.

	   Supposedly clients and a lot	of proxies support the "Connection:
	   close" stream-style,	see support in Varnish at

	   The socket file-descriptor number for this connection.

	   Register a guard to be triggered when the response is completely
	   sent	and the	socket is closed.  A "guard" in	this context is	some
	   object that will do something interesting in	its DESTROY/DEMOLISH
	   method. For example,	Guard.
