Here's the thing - I think I brought this up before and people
yelled and screamed that we should always send C-L.  (I'm fairly
sure I've submitted similar patches to what you sent.)

I know the RFC allows for Connection: Close or chunking, but people
seem to not want to use those more than we have to.

So, I wouldn't commit this until you got some buy-in (3
+1s).  And, here's my +1.  =)  -- justin

P.S. I thought we were going to move r->bytes_sent from C-L down
into the core output filter?
