Uh, my above is wrong, should be *8/6., not the other way around.

http.c does *4/3+12. I don't know why it does +12. The documentation
of _encode() is in line with what I wrote above (except that it
doesn't use ceil() but some simpler integer-only equivalent). Probably
a bug in http.c. Attached patch fixes this.
