It's always been my plan to integrate an IO package like sfio into
Apache 2.0. However, is sfio itself the best choice? While I've not
heard anything specific (nor have I checked specifically), I've heard
random things in passing that seem to indicate there are problems with
sfio. RST used sfio in an early apache-XX, then switched over to

As for the particular question - it's illegal (HTTP/1.1) to send
Content-length with a chunked output. However, it might be a good idea
to buffer a few k before outputting, so we can tack on a
Content-length. The CERN httpd did that. But given that we have
chunking, I don't know if it should be a high priority.
