Unchecked response header length can cause HttpClient to loop endlessly

Christian,
This issue has already been discussed a while ago, and the outcome of it, I
thought, was a clear and plain 'neyt'. 

Please correct me if I am wrong, but there's nothing in RFC that puts a limit on
the size of HTTP headers. If your specific application must deal with broken
HTTP servers that produce infinite streams of garbage, you should provide a
custom HttpParser implementation (which is not currently possible with the
existing architecture, but this is an entirely different story), instead of
trying to get the proposed changes (that hardly making code quality any better,
IMHO) incorporated into the stock version of HttpClient.

-1 from me

Oleg
