Hi !

I have written some custom protocols for our distributed network...

I can see that even if i set URLContext::is_streamed to true in the  
protocol open section, the seek method gets called sometimes. I do  
have registered a seek method but I thought i could use the same  
protocol for streamed/random access if i set this flag to true/false.

Second. What is the URLContext::max_packet_size used specifically  
for. I can see that the data request never gets bigger than this set  
value but what is the actual meaning of it. Can i dynamically change  
this between reads to get better "look ahead" when i have pending  
data in the input buffer ?
