Guys we are talking about protocol!
Saying that one part can send a 32K while the other
part is expecting 8K will in most cases lead to core dump.

If the size is larger then 8K, this is not an AJP13 protocol
any more, and I'll be -1 on any attempt to extend the packet size.
Like said, we can talk about AJP14, but AJP13 is well established
protocol, and ideas that tries to break it will never pass.
