Varnish: Initial lag before dumping output to the browser

| We have setup Varnish to cache the pages, a page which is put together using
| various widgets, seems to load all at once instead of gradual loading.
| Hence, there is an initial 3 to 4sec wait where the browser does not get any
| output, after that the whole rendered page is dumped on the browser. This
| makes the site seem much slower than it actually is.

Varnish currently always fetches the complete object from the backend
before sending anything to the client.
