You must observe the restrictions required by HTTP!
HTTP 1.1 requires that if a response contains a "Content-Length"
header, then it *MUST* correctly specify the size of the response
entity. If it does not contain a "Content-Length", then
its end *MUST* be indicated by closing the connection.
Zope is a bit buggy in this respect. It always adds a
"Content-Length" header, if the application did not do so.
Of course, this automatically added header has (almost surely)
the wrong value for dynamically created content.
Currently, Zope does not support the "no Content-Length; response end
by connection close" possibility.
