Neither am I.

I've recently reviewed the list of open bugs regarding the proxy.
There are quite a few, but none that indicate fundamental failure
to support HTTP/1.1 over HTTP/1.0.  I hope to find time for a blitz
on fixing these bugs sometime soon now, but whether those fixes
will make it into the Apache codebase depends on others.

Of course, much of the advantage of 1.1 over 1.0 in a proxy is cacheing.
Apache's mod_cache has quite a few limitations, but I have yet to
study it in sufficient detail to comment.

It seems rather low traffic.
