It's used in some portable code (e.g. http.c), so it's probably fine.

He probably did, but now that I look at this again, it seems a bit
shady. This code parses the Content-length header, and if parsing it
fails, it will now try the boundary instead. But doesn't this header
always require a numeric value if it's present at all?
