A possible issue here is where a handler reading the contents
requires the content-length header and fails without it (the
old REQUEST_CHUNKED_* stuff gives handlers the OK to do that).
We can fix this by reinserting content-length (at an obvious
cost) if a handler requires it.  But that's another filter.
