Controlling the number of open connections with pipelining

The specifics of our app is that we need to fetch content from a limited number of servers, but there may be many requests generated from a single client to a particular server that need to be serviced at the same time, which sounds like a perfect case for using HTTP pipelining. At the same time we want to cap the number of connections from a client to a particular server to avoid overloading as the number of clients can be large. Based on what I was able to gather pipelining support is still work in progress and I may be out of luck here, but perhaps there some sort of usage pattern our app can follow to achieve the same effect?
