   Should Content-Length include the trainling CRLF in the other cases?

yes, i believe so (from trial and error in the wild, away from the http
specs).  to sum up, if these conditions are met:

 - content-type is application/x-www-form-urlencoded
 - POST data is exactly one line (this is usually the case for this
   content-type since urlencoding "flattens" embedded newlines)

then the final CRLF should be omitted, and the content-length set to
the length of the line in bytes after urlencoding.  i've found this to
work w/ both HTTP 1.0 and 1.1 servers, and have since become uncurious
about the rationale.  now i'm curious again, but still not enough to dig
into the specs.
