The "chunked_transfer_encoding" directive allows to disable use of 
chunked transfer encoding if Content-Length isn't known.  It 
defaults to "on" and can be switched off as a workaround for 
broken clients which claim HTTP/1.1 support but doesn't understand 
chunked transfer encoding.  It is not expected to change handling 
of requests with known Content-Length.
