I'm debugging a web service that is returning a HTTP response with error
code 500. It must be accessed using HTTPS through a proxy, so wget is
pretty much the only place where the response can be shown in plaintext.

As far as I can tell, wget 1.11.4 can't be made to show the body of a
response with status code 500. This prevents me to from seeing the
actual error message.

I suggest adding an option named say --show-body-always, that does what
it says.

I worked around the lack of that feature by commenting out the if block
"if (!(*dt & RETROKF) || head_only) { ... }" starting from line 2220 of
