Thanks for your review. I have made some changes according to it.

Status code 431 is returned when the header line is too long or there are too many headers. And I think the short message is OK and we can provide the exception message in the content message.

As for the style, I don't know why I made that change. Quite sorry for make the noise.

I propose to commit the “Too many headers” handler as a bug fix, and the other changes to only 3.6. Currently when more than 100 header fields are sent, the connection is killed and the server logs an unhandled exception.

I didn’t touch 2.7 because that doesn’t have the same header parsing code as Python 3.
