Hmmm - the claim to build a webserver extension but know little about
HTTP... sounds familiar.

Unless keepalives were switched off.

I see why it didn't work now - IE and Mozilla + proxy in theory would
have worked, but only if keepalives were switched on. If keepalives were
switched off, or if Netscape was used (which only supports HTTP/1.0),
the proxy would have added a connection: close on all requests (as
required by RFC2616) but BEA would have choked.
