The RFC also states (or perhaps it's another RFC...) that we should
behave according to the rules when sending data and be prepared to
receive data that is not strictly correct. So If we want to be able to
receive and process a "gEt" as "GET", I'm all for that, but I would
not change our code to send anything that does not follow the RFC.
