   Yes -- you are assuming that you can parse the first line of the
   request into a METHOD URI PROTOCOL.  My experience is that this is not
   always the case.  More importantly, you *want* to know when it isn't.
   So, send the unaltered REQUEST-LINE (or whatever you wnt to call it)
   instead of METHOD URI PROTOCOL.

So the actual line would look like...


in the usual case?  That seems to handle most everything (except that
we'd need an escaping convention for handling broken request-lines
with tabs in them --- but we need that anyway).
