Subject Proxying OPTIONS *
Date Sun, 30 Sep 2007 23:05:58 GMT
RFC2616 is clear that:
  1.  OPTIONS * is allowed.
  2.  OPTIONS can be proxied.

However, it's not clear that OPTIONS * can be proxied,
given that there's no natural URL representation of it (* != /*).

The Co-Advisor suite has a test case to proxy OPTIONS * using:

OPTIONS * HTTP/1.1\r\n
Host: [remote target host]\r\n

Unfortunately PR#43519 is obscuring the Co-Advisor test case 
(which purports to be testing our handline of Max-Forwards)
by returning 403.

It's not at all clear to me whether that syntax should
be supported.  Anyone?
