We have experience with IPP and chunking. IBM's Lotus Go Webserver rep=
lies
with a chunked response when sent a request header like this one:

POST /servlet/IPPServlet HTTP/1.1
Host: localhost
Accept: application/ipp
Content-type: application/ipp
Content-length: 226

Also, we have interop tested with someone running the Microsoft web ser=
ver.
It, too, seems to reply with chunked Transfer-Encoding. I'm not positi=
ve about
that (don't have the traces here), but I am sure that it always sends a=
100
Continue before that actual response, and I think that implies chunking=
