Probably better to remove the first one.  The second one allocates less,
catches some important error conditions, and doesn't write the fragment

I guess that's OK.  Proxies probably DTRT already, and anyone who wants
something different should be able to write it fairly easily.

One thing though, you are missing the query component.  Care to post a
modifed patch?

Thanks, and sorry for the delay!
