what about

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST}	!.*HTTP/...$	[OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP:Server}	!.*		[OR]
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST}	.*HTTP/1.0$
RewriteRule ^/.*	/http-1.1-required.html

The first line might handle HTTP 0.9 or requests without the HTTP doodad 
on the request line, the second looks for a server header, and the final 
does HTTP 1.0.  Someone with less nachos in the stomach might be able to 
perfect it the suggestion; i have not tested it.

So, if this is true, then just ban HTTP/1.0.  Q: how many v1.0 or v0.9 
requests do many of you get any longer?

Random thought.
