While it looks mostly working (some parts seems to be missing 
though - e.g., using chunked encoding requires appropriate headers 
to be sent to upstream, and HTTP/1.1 used), it seems to introduce 
too much code duplication.  It needs to be addressed somehow 
before we'll able to commit it.

I'll plan to work on this and related problems at the start of 
next year.
