I added a subclass WAFileStream with the same API allowing to hold onto it as a stream. That still allows using purely internal stream, but opens up the possibility to use an external stream as well. This is obviously aimed at being able to stream contents of a file straight from the socket to the disk as the request is being parsed and then provide the WAFile object on top of the new external stream. Would this kind of change be something of interest ? Maybe for the ongoing 2.8 development effort ?

That's definitely of interest, at least to me.

I think what people usually mean is "Transfer-Encoding: Chunked".
