Fixed and committed in revision 85125.

Actually, this changes the behavior of BaseHTTPServer a little and adds two new methods to the code, so I don't think, this should be back-ported to 2.7 and 3.1. If older code were to encounter the new 100 Continue response, then chances are that it may break.

I have added Misc/NEWS too.

BTW, there are tests for BaseHTTPServer in test_httpservers, thought it often gets overlooked. I merged the tests in the patch to that file.

I shall back-port some of the other tests which are useful.
