How many platforms don't already have one?

Unfortunately, due to the CGI restriction, most http servers seem to be designed to discard the message-body of an HTTP/1.1 POST without Content-Length, even if the target is not CGI but, say, a servlet. Right now, I'm just trying to confirm whether or not this is broken behavior.
