Okay talked with Ivan and Lieven on IRC and they explained why this
isn't an option. Essentially Serf isn't as efficient as Neon was with
doing CL requests. We produce a temp file with the body, then send
the data to serf which would produce another temp file and calculate
the size. Which makes this suggestion a bad idea.
