One could of course. But not everyone has lua, lua is slower than C, and 
even doing it in a module instead of core is sometimes more work. For 
example, currently we set r->protocol to "HTTP/1.0" even if the original 
request contained junk. So a module would have to re-parse the whole 
request line to get the protocol string sent by the client.

My goal is something that the vast majority of people would want to 
activate, and would create pressure on manufacturers of clients that 
cannot cope with it to fix their clients.
