http_keepalive.inc

Nessus 2.0.1 and newer support HTTP keep-alive connections, which avoid to re-open a socket for each request. This saves bandwidth and CPU cycles, especially through SSL/TLS. At this time, only the requests made from within the same plugin can be kept alive, however sharing one socket among multiple plugins could be done in the future. To work properly, this file must be included after http_func.inc.
