How about this: client opens a connection, issues a request, receives a
reply and than closes the connection.
To quote from RFC 2616, paragraph 184.108.40.206:
An HTTP/1.1 client MAY expect a connection to remain open, but would decide
to keep it open based on whether the response from a server contains a
Connection header with the connection-token *close*. In case the client does
not want to maintain a connection for more than that request, it SHOULD send
a Connection header including the connection-token *close*.
See, not that hard at all ;-)
