Please note...

If the response is being forwarded through a proxy, the proxy application MUST
NOT modify the Server response-header.

I haven't reviewed the patch, but I presume your patch honors this requirement?

I've read your comments, agree it's 17 bytes (that you can just as well remove,
as you point out, by hand.)

I'm curious - do IE, Firefox or other common clients use the server name tag
as a clue for fixups around aberrant behavior or to enable optimal behavior?
