 I'm certainly not an SSL expert, but overall it looks good to me. Seems to address keystores, SSL context, etc. Some questions:

 (1) Are there defaults for all these builder methods if not called? Or will build() throw an exception if the building process is somehow incomplete?

 (2) What's the rationale/advantage of supporting per-hostname connection pools here?

 (3) Is there a relationship between this builder and Resteasy's implementation of ClientFactory?
