You're right that this is currently not possible.  We'd need to extend the API 
to allow (additionally) passing an offset / length, then this should be easy 
to do.  I'm not opposed to having such a function in principle.

However, as long as you don't require sendfile AND partial sends, you should 
be fine with the current API.

Happy hacking,
