 From protocol.c
/* Get a line of protocol input, including any continuation lines
  * caused by MIME folding (or broken clients) if fold != 0, and place it
  * in the buffer s, of size n bytes, without the ending newline.

 From http_protocol.h
  * Get the next line of input for the request

Are you saying it might be used in a protocol with RFC822-family
line-based headers but where NULL is allowed?  Any examples?

I agree with your point that I should have commented it.
I'll do that if you're not going to veto the patch.
