ah, no.

| The length of the said content as given by the client.

That's rather, *if* the client says something about the length, then
CONTENT_LENGTH tells about it. One should not trust it anyway, since inflating
compressed content with mod_deflate (for example), changes the length, but
neither changes the Header nor the environment variable.
