I think this is yet another critical need for a versatile OPTIONS
method.

I after Roy's ( I think it was him ) comments, Ive begun drawing
up a rough idea for a flexible OPTIONS method message.

I think that as more HTTP1.1 areas come to be implemented, more
cases like this will show up.

The need seems to be to query a proxy ( or a server ) about
its support, or lack of it, for a specific feature, mode,
or otherwise..

Ill try and post my rough idea to the list by the end of the week.
