The mod_proxy in v1.3 does claim to be an HTTP/1.1 proxy, but it doesn't 
claim to be a fully compliant one. There were some protocol things that 
were too hard to do in v1.3, and so were only fixed in v2.0.

Active development is currently being done on v2.1 (soon to be v2.2) 
with active backports to v2.0. Currently v1.3 is "maintenance only", 
which basically means security fixes are all you will get at the moment.
