Speaking of implementations, Jigsaw is meant to implement as much as
possible HTTP/1.1 both as a server and as a proxy. As far as I know it
is still one of the only proxy around being able to handle 1.1.

I am planning to have some HTTP/1.1 demo site (which would try to
exercise some features of 1.1 for implementeors to check their own
implementation - including mine ;-). If you're interested, drop me a
note.

Anselm.
