Dudes, it's already published in http://rfc.net/rfc2818.html - yet it seems
my mailbox fills with another 100k of this discussion every month (mostly
on users@httpd).  It's not worth reinventing twice.

Read the RFC, and take it to your favorite browser vendor/author/project.
If open source - offer a patch already to them.

Go solve it - quit writing here about it :)  In three years after widely
distributed, we could quit deploying 1:1 IP's per host.
