 Replying to [comment:1 sysrqb]:
 > This library using the `NetworkInfo` via the `ConnectivityManager` for
 deciding how many background threads it should create for processing.
 Higher bandwidth connections result in more threads. The default is 3, so
 this shouldn't be a problem. The library also registers for network change
 events. We'll probably need to change it so we don't require these Android

 This doesn't seem like it'll be a problem. Picasso catches missing
 permissions, so that shouldn't be cause a crash.

 > `UrlConnectionDownloader` is the only class that bypasses the proxy, so
 we'll need a patch for that, as well.

 I have a patch for this, branch `27016`, on my repo.
