[Twisted-web] Status of the twisted.web HTTP client?

I am writing a Twisted-based proxy (http://xuproxy.sourceforge.net/). 
Currently, it is based on twisted.web2, since I started on it before the 
merge of twisted.web2's features into twisted.web, and at the time, both 
the twisted.web client and server were missing features that my proxy 
needed. From looking at the current development tree, it looks like the 
server now has all the features that my proxy requires, but the 
twisted.web client is sorely lacking for my purposes (it's HTTP/1.0 only 
and lacks support for persistent connections).

Are there any plans to merge the full HTTP/1.1 support of twisted.web2's 
client into that of twisted.web?
