Thanks for this update :) I've just tested this morning, here on a 2GB
of ram machine, it didn''t work with curl in chunked transfert
encoding. It doesn't work either in chunked mode with one script I
have. However it works with this script based on py-restclient
(attached) in normal mode.

Thanks for this progress :)
