First, maybe a short introduction of who I am. I work for Opera
Software with Opera Mini in the mini server team in Linköping, Sweden.
Now, to business.

I recently submitted a draft for standardizing a replacement for the

Please read the draft and come with feedback.

proxy components to disclose the originating IP number of a request.
