ok, I'll re-phrase.  The 0 chunk becomes expendable if the server closes.

this isn't much different to the case where there's no content length 
and the server closes without chunking.

IMO we should use the information we get though.

Other sorts of connection closure (e.g. timeout, no route to dest etc) 
may indicate another sort of handling is appropriate.
