Even if you do 1:1, if you perform security checks, you may need to
receive everything before you can decide to forward

(the other solution is to forward almost everything and cut the connexion
if the checks are negative once everything is received, but clients do not
like it much and it creates weird UI artefacts when download bars slow
down to a crawl at 99% Users hate those)
