Doesn't for me. E.g. with a script like
it takes 1 second to receive a single chunk with both lines in it.
From a quick skim I assume this is because we don't use nonblocking
sockets in the proxy implementation. (There's even a note in
mod_proxy_fcgi that says, "Yes it sucks to [get the actual data] in a
second recv call, this will eventually change when we move to real
nonblocking recv calls.")

If I'm honest, my brutally blunt take on it is "stop using HTTP to try
to emulate push notifications within a single response; pretty much
everything in the ecosystem is actively working against you at this
point; responses are designed to be cacheable and deliverable as a unit,
not as multiple pieces; and we've had *real* solutions like WebSocket
for five years now rabble rabble rabble." But I don't actually think
that's going to be the accepted answer.
It probably makes sense to work on a nonblocking architecture for
proxied responses in general.
