it's bad engineering to have more than one dimension for the same
quantity.


within a multipart, content-length should *always* be ignored --
or at most used as a "hint" (say, to allocate memory in one
big chunk instead of lots of little chunks).  


but the reader should work correctly even if content-length is
completely bogus.
