Implementing HTTP/1.1 request chunking

Hi all,

I want to get some input with regards to having HTTP/1.1 request chunking in
Nginx. I¹ve done some digging, and I¹ve found a few patches and the module
developed by agentzh.

So, my question is this --
What, as a developer, would I need to do so that I could create a patch for
this that would be accepted as part of the Nginx distribution?

I know that some of the items on this list so far are:
1) That the patch works.
2) Error checking -- check the size of the chunks & that the series of
chunks are terminated properly.
3) Don't use Ragel. :)  Or, for that matter, any tool not already in use by
the Nginx build process.

Thank you -
