With the help of others (Cory Benfield, Matthew Kerwin, Yui NARUSE, 
Tomoyuki Chikanaga, Usaku NAKAMURA), I have worked to make sure 103 
doesn't cause problems in the Net::HTTP Ruby client library.
Please see https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/12890 for details.

The trunk (to become Ruby 2.4), 2.3, and 2.2 are already fixed, but of 
course it will take some time for these fixes to be widely used.

If there are any other things that you think are needed to address this 
problem in Ruby, please let me know.

Regards,   Martin.
