Then at least make sure to reject 1.0 as 505 not supported and not to just
handle it like 1.1, otherwise your users will really face bugs. The typical
thing a developer does is to use telnet or netcat to send a local dirty
request "by hand" when curl for whatever reason is not suitable (e.g. you
want to see when exactly the server rejects your input), and seeing the
connection hung after a response to an 1.0 request is confusing.
