The difference between the approved group and the tristate branch is
that the former lacks the "no" option. The "no" option shaves a part
of a second off the interactive response time of people who are behind
a 411ing proxy, but that cost applies unconditionally even if the proxy
gets upgraded. I'm not sure which way I lean, I guess 0 but that may
change.

Also, if we backport http-detect-chunking as binary and later want to
make it a tristate, we should ask people to either set it to "yes" or to
leave it commended out --- since the "no" answer to the binary option
corresponds to the "auto" answer to the tristate option.
