HTTP/0.9 support

Description

p1 appendix B:

It is worth noting that, at the time of composing this specification (1996), we would expect commercial HTTP/1.1 servers to:

  • recognize the format of the Request-Line for HTTP/0.9, 1.0, and 1.1 requests;
  • understand any valid request in the format of HTTP/0.9, 1.0, or 1.1;
  • respond appropriately with a message in the same major version used by the client.

It's worth revisiting this text specifically, and HTTP/0.9 support in general.
