How many consider the length of the query string already given as the 
initial max length of the header lines; this could be an optimization to 
prefetch memory regions; the given length is the first read only 
well-known cookie from the client. Quadcores may just want the scalar 
value; four lines; 1k each, ascii. That's a lot of headers!
