This what I just posted on the curl-users list but I figure it is actually
better dealt with on this list.

I fully understand that, but I need to consider the library as a whole and to
me it makes a lot of sense that all the supported protocols behave the same way
in regard to zero byte files. Thus, I see little use in having support for this
way to do zero byte file:// transfers, when there's no way to do zero byte
transfers over any other protocol.
So, unless someone comes up with a good argument that speaks against what I'm
saying, I'm gonna reject this patch.
