Wow. That's good to know, I guess. But it's also a shame. :)

Hm. Actually, for Mozilla, I just upgraded to version 1.0 and they now
have an option to use HTTP 1.0. So I'm all set for that.

I also downloaded a lot of filtering web proxies yesterday, and the one
that is by far the easiest to add onion routing support is junkbuster.
(Unfortunately, junkbuster only does 1.0 also.)
