correction. ;-)

Yes, but I was talking about a user's point of view. I don't want
bytes, I want lines.

Oh, so do I! However, I see that as a layering issue and the
bytes-to-lines should be take care of by the client (osc,
your-favorite-gui, etc....). The way I see it, this change fixes what
I see as a layering violation, makes better use of http and doesn't
change the fundamental semantics of the existing software (which uses
bytes already....)
