We should probably document what it means by $c->response->body can accept =
a file handle. =A0Like plack specifies the interface it must deal with. =A0=
Anyone up to that?

This FH in body thing is something I've been thinking about a lot lately, i=
n regards to when Catalyst is running under an event loop for example, shou=
ld Catalyst stream the Filehandle a non blocking manner. =A0But it would be=
 great to document this. =A0Also, I am thinking setting the default size wh=
en its missing could really belong to middleware. =A0Plack has some default=
 middleware that does this:


the means it works looks like this


There's a few things in Catalyst.pm that could profitable just use Plack::M=
iddleware counterparts.

just a thought.

This approach may work for you is the compressed data is actually in a scal=

I really appreciate the time you spent on this.
No prob. Part of my thing on list reponses is that there is a seed for othe=
rs to learn from what was discussed. =

I do wonder if there is a sane way to test for an in memory file
    handle and give a more appropriate warning, but that is for further
