At the moment you can just start a thread that performs one request in
the background. But of course you can start many of those threads with
your own timing pattern to implement your own traffic generator. In
fact, this might be one of the first additions. So if you have
implemented such a traffic generator, please contribute it! :)

I put it on

where it will be available for the next two weeks or so. I hope that we
will find a better solution during this time.

Yes, that was what I was asking. I copied some files and changed them.
If I messed things up, please tell me.
