 [from http://projects.linpro.no/pipermail/varnish-dev/2006-

 What I want to do in the long run is:

  * define HTTP_HDR_HOST and the corresponding req.host variable to be used
 instead of req.http.host.
  * add code to cache_http.c to dissect and normalize the request URL, and
 set the initial value of req.host based on the host part of the request
 URL and / or the Host: header
  * make req.host and req.url writable so vcl_recv can perform further
 normalization if needed (e.g. rewrite vg.no to www.vg.no)
