True, but this is not a showstopper. Keep in mind that it's advantageous
to "try very hard" to cache the entire backend as soon as possible, but
this doesn't have to be perfect in every case. If the socket blocks, the
backend is delayed, and we are not as efficient as we theoretically could
be. Oh well.

This doesn't mean it should not try though, and to bring it back to the
store_body() interface, it means store_body() should keep the option open
for this to be possible, via option #1 or #2.
