But what if I am streaming data I don't know the size yet ? For
example, data coming from a live camera, pre-processed by a FCGI
script and then going through nginx ? I think this is not possible if
chunked encoding is disabled (I would need a valid content-length
header, which I can't provide). The other classic example of the use
of chunked encoding is Comet, which is explained in the link you
provided me.

I guess this is a known problem then. Do you know if it is planned to
fix it in one of the next versions ?
