1)  I'm not convinced that ever worked in Apache.  I will need to look
closer.  My initial impression is that because we need to check the
ranges, we need to have the c-l.

2)  This does work with 20-30,0-19 if the input is a pipe.  We get the
whole content, then we parse it to find the ranges.  This is why we have
to keep the whole request in memory to do byteranges.

A sort-merge function is wrong.  According to the spec, we SHOULD keep the
response in the same order as the ranges were requested.
