[Python-Dev] Better HTTP 1.1 support in http.server?

I was wondering if it would be worth providing better HTTP 1.1 support
in http.server. The way I envision it, there would be a separate
HTTP11RequestHandler which would provide:

- a smart wfile with automatic chunk encoding (which relieves the API
  user from manually handling chunk encoding or content length
- keep-alive enabled by default
- HTTP 1.1 by default (BaseHTTPRequestHandler defaults to 1.0)

What do you think?
