I can maintain.

One thing:

 static int http_close(URLContext *h)
+    int ret;
+    char footer[] = "0\r\n\r\n";
     HTTPContext *s = h->priv_data;
+    /* signal end of chunked encoding if used */
+    if ((h->flags & URL_WRONLY) && s->chunksize != -1 &&
+        (ret = url_write(s->hd, footer, sizeof(footer) - 1)) < 0)
+        return ret;
     return 0;

If it fails, you want to close it the more, and still return an error,
no? If the write fails, this is a memleak.

(BTW why does close() have an error return value anyway?)
