As long as I can say "EnableSendfile On,"  and it tries to use sendfile, 
I don't care.  I have a "stange" setup that I tested to ensure that 
sendfile works perfectly, so the last thing I want is APR to decide it's 
smarter than me and decided to turn it off when I say use it.

BTW, sendfile works fine for us with linux and ipv6.  I tested and 
turned off some offloading features of our cards.  If someone doesn't 
want to take the time to test, then they probably don't care what APR 
does.  As for me, if I say "on" I mean "on."
