Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1421) Wrong X-Forwarded-For address chosen as "peer"?

Wrong X-Forwarded-For address chosen as "peer"?

                 Key: COUCHDB-1421
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Nathan Vander Wilt

I noticed that in the Mochiweb code, it uses the last item of the X-Forwarded-For list as
the peer:

But shouldn't this snag the *first* item of the list instead?
says "the first for-parameter will disclose the user agent where the request first was made"
— the user agent is what I'd want as an app developer, not the second-nearest proxy.
