This is untrue. Consider HTTP/1.1 chunked data. That is "streamy", in that
it doesn't have a Content-Length. (well, an overall C-L; it does have
something like a C-L for each chunk)

The DAV code can easily transfer binary data over the wire. Even in a
streamy fashion. We aren't going to need to do any encoding for content or
diffs transferred via DAV.
