Yeah - I've been thinking about whether to add this, problem is that
realistically chunked request bodies won't get through the majority of
proxies. I confirmed that with Alex Rousskov who does a lot of
compliance testing of HTTP proxies - he said the failure cases aren't
nice either - some proxies pass through the bodies corrupt, some hang,
some reject, etc.

You really think you'd want to use chunked requests in ra_dav?
