I'm also favor dynamic detection over config option. But I don't see
good way to detect such busted proxies without introducing another
request or risk breaking something when request completed in different

I suggest add config option as immediate fix, because problem reported
at least five times.

The fix seems to be pretty simple and could be safely backported (see
patch). The only problem that probably we cannot backport addition of
new configuration option due our backward compatibility policy. But
may be I'm wrong.

Add new 'http-force-http10' configuration option to force using HTTP/1.0
even server declares HTTP/1.1 support.

* subversion/include/svn_config.h

* subversion/libsvn_ra_serf/ra_serf.h
  (svn_ra_serf__session_t): Add FORCE_HTTP10 flag.

* subversion/libsvn_ra_serf/serf.c
  (load_config): Parse 'http-force-http10' configuration option.

* subversion/libsvn_ra_serf/util.c
  (handle_response): Do not upgrade to HTTP/1.1 if force_http10 is true.

* subversion/libsvn_subr/config_file.c
  (svn_config_ensure): Mention http-force-http10 in 'servers' file template.

(I'm not sure about option name)

PS: I'm going to country until Tuesday, so feel free to commit and
backport this patch.
