  Hum, I have been following the streaming/fragment thread. However I have
the feeling that even multiple fragment body extensions would not solve
the problem you were facing. If I didn't get the discussion wrong, it seems
that you rather tried to make one very big (i.e. stream) document from
multiple sources while the scope of the fragment work was just the opposite,
i.e. how to extract and ship a piece of a very big document.
