About the timeout for 100-continue, the RFC says that the client
should wait a reasonable timeout.
I'll re-check this soon.

+Note: the HTTP *1.0* RFC doesn't say anything about 100-continue, this
+is an HTTP 1.1 feature.
+And regarding the timeout: I'm pretty sure that HTTP 1.1 says, that
+you must deal with a valid response! You say "expect: 100-continue"
+and in case the server does not answer "100 CONTINUE" but something
+else, you must perform some error processing (eg retry the request
+without expect?) and *not* continue waiting for the 100.
+But independend of that, expect: 100-continue should never get send if
+ProtocolVersion is set to 1.0. (though I prefer to have reasonable
+behaviour even when the protocol version is not explicitly set - the
+client should downgrade to the version the server supports).
+Might be that I got something wrong ;-)
