reverse proxy mode, HTTP 1.0 or 1.1?

Yes, that's normal.  Perlbal only speaks 1.0 to the backends regardless of
what the clients are speaking.

It shouldn't matter, anyway.  Clients may send their 1.1 request, but when
they get a 1.0 response from Perlbal, they should switch to 1.0 mode.

We haven't had any problems yet, and I imagine that LiveJournal sees it all!
