Option to supply custom hostname verifier to HTTP client

Hi all,

I think it should be possible to supply a custom javax.net.ssl.HostnameVerifier while building a
java.net.http.HttpClient. While it is possible to disable standard hostname verification via the
system property “jdk.internal.httpclient.disableHostnameVerification”, this doesn’t allow you to
quarantine the behavior to a single HTTP client within the JVM.

Thanks for your consideration,
Anders Wisch
