I've made a small patch against nmap 5.21. Hope it hasn't changed
against HEAD.

Thanks for this patch, and especially for including a test. The code has
indeed changed since 5.21, but it was not hard to update the patch.

The only problem I see is that it doesn't support the Max-Forwards
header field, which is a MUST according to what you cited at
http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec9.html.

I've attached an updated patch against current Subversion, along with
two additional tests for Max-Forwards. Do you think you can make the
necessary changes to make both the new tests pass?
