Two different option names are currently on the table.

httpd-detect-chunking = no/yes (no is the current default). yes means
perform an extra OPTIONS request. no means just use chunking without
checking.
httpd-chunked-requests = auto/yes/no (auto is the default). auto means
perform an extra OPTIONs request, yes means just use chunking no
detection, no means don't use chunking no detection.

The options from Greg's first email are as followed described in the
terms of those options:

1) http-detect-chunking as described above.
2) http-detect-chunking with yes as the default.
3) http-chunked-requests.
