Well, some x-something headers from amazon I was trying to parse that
day. Each was a single entity but had commas inside. Guess some
servers in the wild don't read RFCs much :)

Point is I'd rather have the ability to hook to the http stream at
*all* levels of decoding and interpretation. In this case had to
"fork" the library and hook up my code into it.
