Kindasorta. I believe it does HTTP 1.1 persistent connections.

It's all automatic, as far as it goes.

The new version of the http protocol for web2 supports it a lot better, 
and works with both HTTP 1.0 keepalive and HTTP 1.1 pipelining and 
persistent connections. Web2 is not ready for non-developmental use 
yet, however. The core HTTP protocol layer should be pretty stable at 
this point, but the layer above still needs work.
