you can call httpd.send_res_data(res,data) in a loop; wouldn't that be the 
same? Copas gets it's chance to arbitrate on each res.socket:send(data)

i also thought of allowing res.content to be a function (that would be more 
generic).  but couldn't find any usage pattern where it would be cleaner than 
just calling httpd.send_res_data()

hard threads/forks are the only way when the code you call takes a long time 
without generating output.
