Subject: UserAgent and keep_alive
Download (untitled) / with headers

Hi Mike, Is there any particular reason that ::Simple instantiates a new LWP::UserAgent for every request? I've been testing a small change that caches UA instance on creation and also sets keep_alive so that we don't have to pay the connection handshake on every request. Anecdotally, it feels faster, but also `netstat -a | grep TIME_WAIT | wc -l` doesn't go out of control when doing mass message sends etc. Without this patch TIME_WAIT needs to be lowered via OS parameters to not cause a bottleneck.

I forgot to say, another benefit of the patch is that it lets users supply their own UA, for say testing purposes.
