Yes, it did. Otherwise, modules that were designed for 1.0/1.1 would
compile okay, but fail to work correctly, because the meaning of
read/get_client_block has *completely* changed, and two new functions
(setup_client_block and should_client_block) have been added, both of
which are absolutely neccessary.

This is all needed to support HTTP/1.1. If there was another way to
have done it, I would have. But there wasn't. I've written a more
detailed explanation of why the changes were made; you can look
through the new-httpd archives for them
