I can try (but it will be hard, and more hard to parse than if I could use
words more than one beat long). When you have a host that's based on
Host:, and get it the old way, with no Host:, there is no way to tell what
host it is, and you will get the main host. With the line you talk about
(I can't use it, for it is more than one beat long), you can skip this,
and make your host work for all, both old and new ways.

If you put this line in your file, with "/foo", and then get "/foo" the
old and new ways, you will get the right page. And you can still use "/"
the new way. Do you get it now?  I doubt it: since I can't use real words,
I don't make much sense.

Hope this helps.
