Speaking of which -- no version of squid I'm aware of is HTTP/0.9
compliant. This is necessary for 1.0 compliance and "expected" (in
the words of the RFC) from HTTP/1.1 servers.

   HTTP/1.0 servers must:

      o recognize the format of the Request-Line for HTTP/0.9 and
        HTTP/1.0 requests;

      o understand any valid request in the format of HTTP/0.9 or

      o respond appropriately with a message in the same protocol
        version used by the client.

Does anyone know if there's a reason for this? Maybe there are so few
0.9 clients in existence that it doesn't matter much, but I'm curious.
