and I thought you wanted it simple ;-)

There is no way to force a server to send you a chunked response using
regular HTTP headers, so in this case the server and client have an
understanding that when the client asks for a particular resource the
server will send it back in chunks.

If that understanding was encoded differently, say in the search field
of the URL rather than the path would that make you happier?  do you
have some other idea?

Not clear how that interferes.  You should feel free to reuse the server
code and extend it as you need to do a faux Kerberos server.
