Hi Chris, this is because the client doesn't know when to stop
reading the connection otherwise, and waits until the keepalive
timeout (5 seconds or so by default).

"Content-Length" (or "Transfer-Encoding") is required by the Rack spec,
so you need to include it in your app (or use
Rack::ContentLength and/or Rack::Chunked middlewares).

Starting with Rainbows! 0.97.0, you can set "keepalive_timeout 0" in
your Rainbows! config block to disable keepalive across all concurrency
models, which lets you violate the Rack spec and get immediate
