Well technically no, it is not strictly thread safe (it retains a
reference to the mutable RiakConfig it is constructed with, for
example.) You can use it safely across threads *if* you safely publish
it and then treat it as _effectively immutable_. Then you can leverage
the single HttpClient with the MultiThreadedConnectionManager.

It will be thread safe in the near future.
