Ripping HTTP "0.9" support _out_ flys directly in the face of "be lenient in what you accept and strict in what you produce."

I do not mind removing support from http.server.  But http.client needs to be able to communicate with any random server created since the dawn of time.  Often on 8 bit microcontrollers that haven't been updated since 1994.

How does keeping 0.9 client support in hurt us?
