I suppose there might be a proxy that accepts some chunked requests but
not others and so we might get a 411 in the middle of a pipeline. For
that case we probably need the config knob even if we add some automatic
detection. But that's a theoretical problem, the bug reports so far
involve a proxy with no support for chunked requests for which automatic
detection should be possible.
