> I noticed that in the Mochiweb code, it uses the last item of the X-Forwarded-For list
as the peer:
> https://github.com/apache/couchdb/blob/master/src/mochiweb/mochiweb_request.erl#L82
> But shouldn't this snag the *first* item of the list instead? http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-petersson-forwarded-for-02#section-5.2
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.
