So, the situation is far from being simple. There's no consistency in how
various HTTP agents and servers handle the digest-uri. I re-read the RFC and
this did not make things any clearer for me. There are ways of seeing and not
seeing, depending on what one wants or does not want to see. Hence, the
inconsistency in implementations

I suggest the following:
(1) For release 3.0 we basically do nothing because we simply can't work around
the problem without unfreezing the API
(2) For release 3.1 we can fix the problem for CONNECT methods. This can be done
without breaking the 3.x API comatibility
(3) We revisit the problem in the course of 4.0 development and try to come up
with a proper fix for the problem
