      Description

      RFC2616 explicitly prohibits the use of weak validators in non-GET requests, however, the HTTPbis working group says while the limitation for weak validators on ranged requests makes sense, weak ETag validation is useful on full non-GET requests; e.g., PUT with If-Match. When HTTPbis working group publishes a clarification to HTTP/1.1, weak validators will be allow for PUT and DELETE requests. HttpClient should make this an config option until HTTP/1.1 is officially clarified.
