However, if you try to apply this pattern to HttpClient, another IDisposable class, you trip over some rather unexpected problems...When you dispose it, it starts the process of closing the socket(s) that it controls. Which means you have to go through an entirely new connection cycle the next time you make a request.

I'm sorry, but my response is "well, like, duh." I knew that ages ago (I guess .NET 2.0, so yeah, maybe I had read the 1.10 doc) when I did some performance tests of opening/closing HttpClient connections when I was writing a client-server app. First thing I did actually was check the performance of constantly re-opening a new connection every time I wanted to talk to the server.

And wrapping an HttpClient is a using block? I don't even do that for a SQL connection. In fact, I rarely (and I mean, blood dripping rare) ever use using.

The DNS thing I never encountered because this was all intranet stuff.
