Comment (by joel):

 Any HTTP connection by RFC SHOULD degrade gracefully to non Keep-Alive
 (Close) connections, as connection close is the default behaviour

 As long as it is with HTTP in mind there probably shouldn´t be any problem
 unless you are trying to use varnish with a custom made backend that
 requires persistant connections.

 Even without connection: close by default, the connection does get closed

 Or if this http://varnish.projects.linpro.no/ticket/452 worked we probably
 wouldn´t need pipe for post requests, only for non-standard request
