I had started with that idea but couldnt conitnue with it since ideally 
different HTTP reqs can come in different SCTP streams in the _same_ 
apr_socket_t. So the stream info will be overwritten after each request.
In that case, the response and req could end up in different SCTP streams.

However, I faced another problem in httpd for which I changed the design 
so that another request can be read only after the response to prev req 
has been sent. (I can elaborate further if there is interest). So now, I 
can put in the stream info in apr_socket_t. Will that be better?

I saw that apr_parse_addr_port was called by listen.c to read the addr and 
port from the Listen directive. This function has to be changed too since 
the new Listen directive can have protocol as an argument.
