I think the theory is that recall_body() should only be called on a 304
not modified (with no body), so in theory there is no existing body
present, so no need to clear the brigade.

Of course practically you don't want to make assumptions about the
emptiness of the existing brigade, so clearing the brigade as a first step
makes definite sense.
