Just wanted to say what a great job you've done on Ratpack. My last project was trying to use asynchronous servlets on Jetty and to say it was a pain is somewhat of an understatement.
I'm trying to push a new project into production (using Ratpack) but am having issues in handling connection timeouts using the Ratpack HttpClient. After some digging (RequestActionSupport) I've noticed that there is no way of specifiying the connection timeout (which I assume should be via http://netty.io/4.0/api/io/netty/channel/ChannelOption.html#CONNECT_TIMEOUT_MILLIS) via the Ratpack API. Are there any plans to add this feature soon or do you have any suggestions of how to get round this problem?
