Thank you. As Daniel stated, if the issues are not raised, then they
are *not* issues/blockers.

Per my comments in 3979, I feel that one is the most critical. I
believe that we need to probe the server to determine whether some
broken crap has been interposed. I'm of a mind to say "fix your shit",
but also know that we can do something to work around the problem.
Justin's patch is interesting, but I believe it "happens to work", and
a higher-level solution is needed.

I also believe that 3980 is simply server-misconfiguration:
servers/proxies need to enable caching to get the wins that ra_serf
should make possible (with no loss to users who continue to use
ra_neon).
