The limit to readline() was added to prevent consuming an excessive amount of memory. But this doesn't help in case of long multiline responses, since all lines are accumulated in a list in memory. A malicious server could cause a client consuming an excessive amount of memory by sending large number of short lines instead of one long line.

Christian, what are you think about this?
