Hasn't force-response-1.0 been disabling keepalives for *years*??
If I recall, again it's been awhile, the keepalive thing was a major
part of the problem...

I can't see changing the behavior now, after all these years.
If we want to create a variant that maintains the feasibility of
keepalives, then a big +1 for that, but it should be a new
envvar, not changing the userland experience of an existing one...

Just my 2c :)
