Bill -

I have some special purpose clients that use POST for transfer of large
objects whose size cannot be calculated in advance without undue burden.
I use self-delimited encodings that bear a remarkable resemblance to
HTTP-NG. It works fine with ncsa/apache and with website, and is in-spec
for /1.0 so it ought to work with everything. Maybe I could run this NG in
1.0 code over ange's 1.0->NG->1.0 relay :)
