Does nginx handle proxying chunked encoding PUT requests

I'm using nginx as a proxy for my webdav library which is still in  
development (hence leaning on nginx for things like gzip and basic  
auth) and I noticed a weird behaviour with clients that PUT data using  
chunked encoding. I don't have the full request data with me but the  
trace goes something like this

client -> nginx

PUT /something HTTP/1.1
Content-Encoding: chunked

<one packet of body>

nginx -> application
PUT /something HTTP/1.1
Content-Length: 0

My question is, does nginx support chunked encoded request bodies, and  
if not, how hard would it be to make that possible?
