Fully agree. We need a way to support running two (or more) simultaneous
http sessions active reading from multiple locations in the file. We sort
of support it already, we don't drop the old session until the new is
established, suppose we could add some timeout on the old session keeping
it around so we can re-use it on the next seek request if it's current
position is close to target.
