>From the proxy_http.c source in HEAD, it looks to me like 
mod_proxy buffers the entire incoming request body unless 
it's able to send it via chunked encoding.  However, 
"proxy-sendchunks" needs to appear in the r->subprocess_env 
table for that to happen, and AFAICT there's no code in 
httpd-2.0 which does that.
