Could I get the following update reviewed?

In the SunJSSE provider, IOExceptions in application output stream was 
updated to be wrapped into SSLException so as to close underlying 
connections automatically. However, there are compatibility impact 
reported [1].

It is not a good solution to use specific exception and JSSE 
implementation details to switch business flow. However, as applications 
have used this way, we may want to fix the compatibility issue.

Simple fix, no new regression test.  The HttpComponents community had 
confirmed the patch [1].
