lighttpd only print answering header "Connection: close" about Keep Alive. But Any programs check answering header as follows:

For HTTP/1.1


Connection: Keep-Alive 

is the default and doesn't have to be specified.

The Keep-Alive header is not specified in the RFC 2616 and I wonder where it is documented.

Keep-Alive: header is optional. (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2068 19.7.1.1)

But, sometimes some libraries (for example, libtorrent and so on..) check this header. So, I want to be support this function on lighttpd.

The Keep-Alive header itself is optional, and is used only if a
parameter is being sent. HTTP/1.1 does not define any parameters.

So there are no standard params, there is reason to use it.
