I'll leave it up to someone more familiar with the GTTP spec (like someone
who has actually read it, rather than just reading about it) to determine
what is correct behaviour when the client requests that end of transfer be
signalled by closing the connection (original HTTP 1.0 behaviour) but the
server wants to implement connection keep-alive (so the client can either
reuse the connection, or otherwise initiale the close, so it gets TIME WAIT
state rather than the server).
