I'm sure it's right there in the source, just search for the string
512.  It's probably in mongrel.rb or defined in a file in the
ext/http11 directory.  But why do you think that is the only way to
keep it cross browser compatible?  I can't imagine that being true, as
what you are doing is considered bad practice and prone to causing
problems for you down the road.
