Whoops, so much for not reduplicating effort.

I guess if the flags don't matter, I will probably send what I have to
wine-patches in a day or a few then, and then I would appreciate your
comments on it.

I did notice that native urlmon seems to behave differently when running
on XP or on wine (a lot more Switch being called on XP, and I assume
intermediate data notifications which I also assume are missing on
native urlmon running on wine, but I did not pursue this further).

Maybe I will need to look at these once I have the HttpProtocol stuff
ironed out.

Thanks for your reply.
