I've updated my PR to now take this approach.

  - it adds a command line option and a setopt option to allow HTTP/0.9
  - the new options can be used from 7.64.0 so users can start to opt-in
    already then
  - both the tool and the library continue to allow it by default
  - 6 months after 7.64.0 we switch off the default acceptance and users then
    must opt-in to keep using HTTP/0.9
  - this is all mentioned in docs/
