> It would be nice for Apache Felix ({{org.apache.felix.http.jetty}}) to support  the standard
set of {{X-Forwarded...}} type headers that are typically required when running behind a reverse
proxy or load balancer (see \[1\] & \[2\]. Specifically:
> * {{X-Forwarded-For}}
> * {{X-Forwarded-Server}}
> * {{X-Forwarded-Port}}
> * --{{X-Forwarded-Proto}}--  (already supported via FELIX-4330)
> so that {{HttpServletRequest}} {{getRemoteHost}}/{{getRemoteAddr}} {{getServerName}},
{{getServerPort}}, {{getScheme}} return the appropriate values that are forwarded by an Apache
Proxy/Load balancer. Furthermore, the {{sendRedirect()}} method will need to be amended (to
incorporate these values otherwise you will end up with a Tomcat bug like \[4\] & \[5\]).
