http-client was written as a simple to use "90% use cases" tool. That's
why it will handle redirects automatically and it doesn't have an easy
way to interfere with that.
For most people this is sufficient. If you have specific requirements
that can't be done in a clean way with http-client, it might make more
sense to use intarweb directly and perhaps copy and paste some code
Of course, if there's a clean way to extend http-client to support new
use cases, I'm always open to considering making some changes to make
it possible, but it should never interfere with common use cases.
