    Should we start this with 1.2?  Just for grins, I created a keypair
    for "The Apache Group", but it's unclear how to distribute the
    secret key (or to whom).  Via file on Taz..?

    I'm no HTTP maven, and the only things of which I could think that
    fall into this category are:

     o Doesn't issue "Vary: Host" in responses because it would appear
       in *all* responses and would therefore chew up bandwidth
       unnecessarily.  [I'm still not entirely comfortable with this;
       just because Apache's (current) implementation means we'd send
       the header every time doesn't == it's okey to violate the RFC in
       the interests of performance.  Just IMHO.]
     o Proxy isn't HTTP/1.1-compliant yet.

    Are there any others?

    On the 2.0 front..  Is there any current mechanism for recording
    things for consideration?  If not, should there be?  If so, should
    it be readable by our `customers' so they can comment?  I ask
    because I know I can think of about half-a-dozen things, but they're
    either only in my head or scattered through megabytes of archived

    #ken    :-)}
