RE: Padding size in chunked encoding

This problem could be cleanly solved if we could zero pad the size
of a chunk.  I.e. if a chunk size could look like


The current BNF disallows this, however.  Is there some reason for
disallowing a leading zero?  If this cannot be changed I suspect
we will end up with rather inelegant extensions like


with a variable number of x's adjusted to create the padding.

John is right, but this was discussed at length at the time. I've
never heard a reasoned argument aginst the leading zeros but
 it didn't get fixed then and its too late now.
