Via is a HTTP/1.1 thing. Our proxy server is HTTP/1.0. There are a
whole lot of things HTTP/1.1 proxies should do that mod_proxy doesn't
do. Via is the least of them.

Oh, and you have the syntax wrong. I don't have the spec in front of
me, but it uses the hostname and HTTP version number. The product id
tag can be put into a comment, but it's not required.
