Streaming API doesn't use chunked encoding (breaks bitlbee-mastodon)
bitlbee-mastodon tries to use the streaming API (
/api/v1/streaming/user) but gets confused due to the connection being a "normal" HTTP connection (
keep-alive) rather than being chunked (no
Transfer-Encoding: chunked). The underlying HTTP code in bitlbee records a closed stream when
req->body_size >= req->content_length which causes bitlbee-mastodon to consider login failed (
Login error: Stream closed (200 OK)).
Mastodon Streaming API docs says that the streaming endpoints work as "chunked-encoding transfer" (or, alternately, a websocket).
(bitlbee-mastodon is A-OK talking to a Mastodon instance; it's just Pleroma that confuses it.)
