I've tested my "chunkin" module with the standard proxy module and it
works flawlessly. Because ngx_http_read_client_request_body does not
do anything when r->request_body already exists.

Regarding the pipelined requests in a keep-alive connection, yes, it's
a TODO :) I'll have to reuse the bytes left in a previous request's

It seems that the exising ngx_http_read_client_request_body is having
similar problems there? Because the leading bytes of the next request
is likely to be read into r->header_in when the previous request's
body and headers are small enough. But I'm not sure :)
