Sorry Roy, I said totally stupid things here, I was mixing two things,
multiple header procesing and multiple lines. No of course I'm not adding
the comma here. I'm just replacing all LWS with SP, so basically we get at
least 2 SP in the result (in case of pure LF+SP) or 3 SP for the common
case (CRLF+SP).

Sorry for the noise.
