This whole thread started due to a commercial GSM mobile phone:
	User-Agent: SonyEricssonP900/R102 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.0 Rev/MR4

, it sends HTTP/1.1 "chunked" requests to its HTTP proxy although you will
access general web sites. The "chunked" body is apparently created on the fly,
each "chunk" as a specific body element generated by a part of P900 code.
