I've already complained about this before and gave in-depth reasons why
we don't need these interfaces, but can we please remove Client.Builder
and ClientFactoryBuilder? They are not needed by either the jaxrs
implementation or the application developer. All logic can be contained
within ClientFactory or Java EE app server.

I have yet to hear a good reason from you guys why we need this extra bloat.
