Actually, shouldn't you be doing the opposite (trying 1.1 first, and
then falling back on 1.0 if the proxy rejects your 1.1 request).

CUPS supports HTTP 0.9, 1.0, and 1.1. For 0.9 and 1.0 the client
*must* send the Content-Length for the IPP request. For 1.1 we allow
chunked or "single" (Content-Length) data streams.
