Not really, but in that case we would need to
extend the AJP protocol with something that would
notify the mod_jk/mod_proxy_ajp that explicit flush()
was requested.
That would of course break any mod_jk/mod_proxy not
having those extensions.
With empty packet the previous versions will simply
write 0 bytes to the client, while 1.2.20 and up
will call the web server flush.
