What are the ill effects of this? Small chunks (greater than a few
hundred bytes anyway) are slightly wasteful, but not really that bad
as far as I can tell. Now, if the chunks are 3 bytes, or if each chunk
is being send out as a seperate packet, that would be really bad.

Still, preventing this would be a good thing. Maybe the buffering
filter should be inserted before chunking?
