Sends HTTP chunked to HTTP/1.0 client

Issue #10 new
Former user created an issue

I have a body-producing function that returns {stream, StreamBody}, resulting in Transfer-Encoding: chunked.

When connecting with an HTTP/1.0 client (specifically, GNU wget 1.11.4), the transfer is still chunked even though HTTP/1.0 and wget do not support chunked encoding.

{{{
HTTP/1.0 200 OK
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Server: MochiWeb/1.1 WebMachine/1.5.2 (that tip is the fix)
}}}

I'm not sure if this is webmachine's responsibility (or mochiweb's?), but thought I'd document the issue since I was tearing my hair out until I realized wget doesn't support chunked... (curl does support HTTP/1.1 and chunked, for the record).
