'Even at this point' at the beginning of a sentence

I would like to know, what kind of emotional expression does an author trying to express by using this as a beginning of a sentence.
Or what does he\she mean by this beginning?

    Would you please give us a complete sentence with those words, krave?
    Yes, I am very willing to do so, Barque.
    Although not sure if the context would be clear for you because it is from a computer science related book.

    The context is:
    Even at this point, a lot of HTTP logic has been silently taken care of. The actual request sent by curl contained a few important HTTP headers. To see these, let’s modify the server to log the headers received in the client request (sent by curl).
    There is a HTTP server test example before this paragraph.
    And I think Even at this point should be a conjunction or not if I am wrong.

    I am ready to answer any question about my thread. :)

    Even at this point, a lot of HTTP logic has been silently taken care of.
    At this point = at this stage [of the process].

    The word "Even" suggests that a lot of work relating to taking care of HTTP logic has already been started and completed.

    In this context, it implies to me that taking care of HTTP logic would normally be expected to occur later in the process but has already been done to a large extent.
