Subject Re: [PATCH] HTTP proxy, ab, and Host: as a hop-by-hop header?

I am fixing this... but the puzzle I have is that -always- adding
a ':80' in the Host: is kind of causing an extra 3 bytes on the wire for
each request - which makes it harder to compare the results a runs
against each other.

Let me puzzle a bit.
