You don't need a HTTP 0.9 server, from what I gather from the specs, all 
the compliant servers (1.0 &1.1) have to be backward compatible with HTTP 0.9.

Also, the HTTP 1.0 spec says that a Simple-Response can only be given to a 
Simple-Request, where the Simple-Request is defined as: Simple-Request = 
"GET" SP Request-URI CRLF.  So try sending the following:

GET /?sql=select+*+from+dual;
