Subject [Bug 57483] Omit "Keep-Alive" header on 1.1 connections

The Keep-Alive response header is a hint which may be used by browsers to
determine how many requests (max=) and how long connections (timeout=) will be
kept alive by the server.
It may prevent them from sending requests too late, so this is a valuable
information IMHO (I don't know if browsers use it though, but they ought

Indeed HTTP/1.1 does not define Keep-Alive as such, but says any header
Connection's token used as a header is hop-by-hop (ie. not forwardable and
possibly ignored if not understood), and so is Keep-Alive.

"Connection: keep-alive" is the default in HTTP/1.1, so it may not be needed
unless the header Keep-Alive is also there.
