Which won't hurt compared to today assuming we are swallowing the 100
responses, which we already do due to broken servers sending them to us
even in HTTP/1.0..

It's very very rare servers will respond with 417 in response to Expect:
100-continue. And if they do then the applications talking to those
servers can be assumed to not blame Squid when the application fails to
understand 417...

But yes, once we announce ourselves as HTTP/1.1 to servers then we will
see a whole lot more 100 Continue responses which need to be swallowed.
But that's nothing strange.
