I needed to use a client side ssl certificate to connect to the server, 
which ab didn't support.  Additionally there was this nice warning in 
the ab docs :)


     When compiled in (ab -h will show you) use the SSL protected https 
rather than the http protocol. This feature is experimental and very 
rudimentary. You probably do not want to use it.

So the WWW::Curl::Easy option seemed like a good approach.  The 
production client was curl based also, so that was an additional 
consideration in favor of the curl approach.
