#204: Handling of HTTP headers
 Reporter:  des          |       Owner:  phk

 Severity:  normal       |    Keywords:       
 Strictly speaking, when issuing a normal (non-pass, non-pipe) request to
 the backend, all headers that somehow identify the client should be
 removed, to avoid the chance of the backend basing its response on one of
 them.  This includes headers like {{{User-Agent}}}, {{{X-Forwarded-For}}}
 (see #203), {{{Via}}}, etc.

 This can of course all be done in VCL.
