does UINT64_MAX chunksize make sense ?
doesnt this indicate that theres a really huge chunk ?
or does it have some special meaning ?
iam asking because this feels a bit odd. Could a server use
UINT64_MAX + 1 instead of UINT64_MAX ? If so the point of failure moves
by one in UINT64_MAX by adding a flag, or maybe i misunderstand

ive briefly looked at rfc7230 but cant really find any limit on chunksize
