Good point it went away. I too am an author of an implementation that
does not support it.

I reported a few cases of duplicated content-lengths I already observed
and the fact that I decided to only allow multiple content-lengths if
they are all exactly the same. You said that for this specific case this
was probably acceptable. Do you think relaxing the rule for this specific
case merits a a small add-on to the spec or should we simply enfore the
test and wait for code responsible for duplication to get fixed when
facing the errors (after all, since the content-length is not defined as
a comma-separated list, it should never appear more than once, but you
know the difference between what we say and what we observe) ?

Thanks,
Willy
