The proxy doesn't do pipelining due to limitations in the way Apache 
talks to it's modules, however it does support HTTP/1.1 keepalives, 
which allows more than one request to be served over one TCP connection.

There should be no need to do anything to the backend webserver, just 
make sure it supports HTTP/1.1 and has keepalives enabled.
