The annotation script was getting an odd environment variable set:
HTTP________________=~~~~~~
Curious about the origin, I did a patchPanel dump of a conversation
with amaya 8 running on windows:
    mr-pink:/home/eric$ /usr/local/src/patchPanel/patchPanel "proxy 8080 iggy.w3.org 80"            
proxied 4 to 5 for 3 (proxy 8080 iggy.w3.org 80)

I've poured through the HTTP/1.1 spec and can't find any mention of
the ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ header. It must be very avante garde.
