-1  I dislike such signatures.  It would need to be an option, and in
    any case would never include a mailto link, in order for me to +0.

Note that timeouts are probably broken for inetd mode, just as they
are for -X.  I think we'll need to replace OPTIMIZE_TIMEOUTS with a
runtime option.

The current behavior is correct.  A range which extends beyond the actual
length of the entity is possible in cases where a device is attempting
to limit the response size (think PDA) even when it doesn't yet know
the actual length.  At least, that was the goal.
