It's really a pretty useless output. With the standard verbose mode (-v), curl
will display that message with counter for the first chunk of data it sends
off, but not for the rest - if there is a rest. We should probably reconsider
that logic.

If you want better and more details, use the --trace or --trace-ascii options.
