Please address the following comment from the server.py source:
# The default request version. This only affects responses up until
# the point where the request line is parsed, so it mainly decides what
# the client gets back when sending a malformed request line.
# Most web servers default to HTTP 0.9, i.e. don't send a status line.
default_request_version = "HTTP/0.9"
I realize this is a somewhat obscure point, and in general, if your
interest in http.client and http.server implies that some of the many
outstanding bug reports for that code will get resolved, I have no
concern for dropping support for HTTP 0.9 protocol, other than the above.
