implementing something like this would be really cool, however there is
one big blocker to this[0, Page 9]:

   "The minimum version of HTTP used by DOH SHOULD be HTTP/2 [RFC7540]."

Given these circumstances, I see no elegant way to implement this in a
suckless way given HTTP/2 requires the server to do some pretty complex

I have no idea why these guys were so keen to declare HTTP 1.1 dead so

With best regards
