I see we definitely have similar thinking on the modifications required for this, but I don’t think I’m in favour of the approach in the patch. Consider the case where you have a GET request without a body. Now, instead of simply circumventing the _set_content_length method altogether as would have been done previously, the code path will now go into _set_content_length, have a TypeError exception raised on (str(len([None])) and then an AttributeError exception raised on os.fstat([None].fileno()). That seems to be quite a bit of additional overhead when it could be avoided altogether by an earlier check as I have in my example.

What do you think?
