It's very rare for clients to do that. There was recently a discussion
on the yaws list where yaws didn't support clients that POSTed data
as chunked encoding. Apparently some weird cell phone did that and
yaws didn't suppport it then.

- check and see if "curl" can do it - the www engineers
   universal tool no 1.

- learn how it works and hack ibrowse. It's not especially
   complicated.
