Maybe the Proxy will fix it but it will not be the solution, so i think 
i'm gonna write the module-filter.
But i need to know how Apache handle multi chunk request, as im not able 
to find this information.
Is request coming entirely to my filter in the form of bucket&brigades 
then passed to down-streams module or brigades are passed down as soon 
as they come? (I hope i explained it well)

Tnx a lot,
