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.
