Is there any limit to the amount of chunks per range request in squid?
I tried to read the RFCs:

But It was a bit hard for me to understand if there is a limit.
Currently I have seen MS updates trying to fetch about 16 ranges per request
with "if-modified-since X".
>From What I understand squid should be able to fulfill each and every one of
these requests if it has the full file 
but it will fetch each and every chunk or at-least validate against the
origin service.

And I was also wondering about squid compliance to "Retry-After" RFC, is
there any known client which actually implements support for that feature?
