Thanks, merged and pushed!

Yeah, I'd say there are more references to 2616 we can update now, and there
might be some functional changes we can consider but as the world's servers
didn't change suddenly change now I don't think there are too many. Perhaps a
few more in the style you just did where the messaging can now be done

libcurl does mostly already work according to the new spec as several
obsoleted things in RFC2616 were never implmented (nethier by us nor by most

Yes! docs/RESOURCES clearly needs a good cleanup in general as it lacks a lot
of references.
