Well, the manager can perform HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/1.0 requests, the
ProxyFrame is responsible for the creation of that request, based on the
incoming request.
see org.w3c.jigsaw.proxy/ForwardFrame, the method is :

protected org.w3c.www.protocol.http.Request dupRequest(Request request) 

And the request that will be sent is...
	req = manager.createRequest();
which is by default an HTTP/1.1 request.
