Speaking of this, how hard would it be to build a simple test setup
which uses netcat as both client and backend ?

Something like:

testone () {
	varnishd -b localhost:8081 -T one_req &
	nc -l 8081 < $server_resp > $server_req
	nc localhost 8080 < $client_req > $client_resp
	diff $server_req $server_req_ref
	diff $client_resp $client_resp.ref

Since we control the server document, we don't get into trouble
comparing Date: headers.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
