I consider this a very minor bug, if even a bug at all.

I've left it like that since it's been there for ages (more than six years
IIRC). I don't see it hurting anyone, but yes it might not have any effect in
some - or even most - cases.

Also, remember that libcurl itself usually has no clue if it speaks with a
HTTP 1.0 or 1.1 server until after it receives the ressponse.

I have no plans to change this, and it is very easy for all users of the
command line tool and library to replace it or prevent it from being sent
using provided methods, should users care enough.
