You're quite right that HTTP/1.0 (RFC 1945) doesn't support persistent
connections, and doesn't define a Connection: header.

I believe the server is supposed to drop the TCP connection at the end of
the body for HTTP < 1.1.

Perhaps the safest thing is to add a "Connection: close" header, *and* drop
the TCP connection, if the client requests HTTP < 1.1
