fetch & delivery simutaneously

Hi all

I am using squid for caching big (1Gb and more) files. Now I am
considering of migration to varnish. But I don't see there the feature
that squid has by default: if the file is missing in cache it starts
fetching it from backend and delivering to client at the same time. So
client don't wait at all and begins receiving the file immediately. But
with varnish client should wait until file have come into cache
completely. For big files it is not acceptable. In most cases client
closes connection becouse of timeout or by users action.

My question is: are there configuration solutions of this problem, or
this feature is not implemented yet at all?
