Hello.

I need to process http requests from some mobile phones, they uses chunked 
data in POST method. In http headers they send Transer-encoding: chunked, not
"content-length" or "connection: close".

Yaws does not implement such request.I attempt to hack yaws sources, but i
get http_error from gen_tcp:read function on first line of POST body.

Is inets capable to process chunked data at server side?
Are here any sane reasons to avoid receivind chunked data by server?
