	This is certainly compelling so it should be changed. My one
problem with this is marketing-driven, which I know is Evil on this
list, but still.. if Netcraft keys on only the first field, then
Netcraft won't reflect Apache-SSL's growing marketshare, which will
hurt my image.
	How does Netcraft deal with servers that respond like that?
