When using nginx to proxy to http, the response status (code and text)
are passed though unchanged if the request comes in via HTTP or HTTP
over SSL; the text however is currently stripped when the request is
made via SPDY.  For us this meant that enabling SPDY broke our
application which expected to receive our custom status text.

While we could easily work around this, we think that it better for
nginx to be request transport agnostic as much as possible.
Applications that prefer a curt status may still provide one and it
will be passed through unmolested.
