No, that's not true; tests/streaming-test.c in the source explicitly
SOUP_ENCODING_EOF all work for streaming a response from the server.

Maybe you're just getting confused by the API, which still uses the
"wrote-chunk" signal even if you're not using chunked encoding. (It
essentially just means "finished writing the last block of data", not
literally "wrote an HTTP/1.1 chunk".
