Description: ------------ It is currently impossible to determine whether or not a redirect has actually gone to an expected URL. cURL normally exposes this in the CURLINFO_EFFECTIVE_URL info. HTTP_Request2 should expose this too.

In fact, Curl Adapter exposes the result of curl_getinfo() via its getInfo() method, it is also possible to get the effective URL of the request in Socket adapter when using Observers. An identical method to get this info for both Adapters should be added, though.

Unfortunately, in the case of the cURL adapter, the only way to access the getInfo method without extending HTTP_Request2 would be to instantiate the adapter manually and pass it in as an object. If you pass a string as the adapter type, there is no way to retrieve the current adapter object from outside the class.
