+1 for this. I agree with Alexei. We're fundamentally changing the core code
for 2.0, and the faster we do that, the faster we can move on with
enhancements. The proxy could use a lot of stuff now, but it will only get
bug fixes until 2.0, since it has to become HTTP/1.1 compliant first of all.
The proxy goal for 1.2 was to become solid for the protocols it supports, and
that's done. We really need to get 1.2 solidified and out the door, at this
