The CCviewer contrib uses its own web server (a modified version
of Joe Armstrongs pico web server), which also supports this
particular feature of HTTP/1.1. (Actually, it's not really the
web server part, since it allows the application to address the
socket directly. I use it for particularly lengthy jobs, where
the application also senses "socket closed" and stores the page
for later retrieval.
