I would like to remove HTTP 0.9 support from http.client and

for that. Would anyone think it's a bad idea?
(HTTP 1.0 was devised in 1996)
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"
What do you mean by "address"? The patch changes this to 1.0.
And, as the comment says, this only affects what happens when the
client sends a syntactically invalid request line, so whether the server
does a 0.9-style or 1.0-style response is unimportant.
Just what you did... justify the unimportance of not changing it :)
Since now it is different than "most web servers".<br>
