Eric, please correct me if I am wrong, but it seems there's a certain
terminology confusion. 'Identity' is a content encoding, not a transfer
encoding. RFC 2616 defines only one valid transfer encoding: chunked.

I think the fix suggested by Brent is indeed the right one. Transfer-encoding &
Content-Length headers are mutually exclusive. We just have to print a
BIIIIIIIIG FAT waring message in case transfer encoding is anything but chunked
and return the input stream as is

Am I missing something?

Oleg
