I'm pretty sure the ActiveState version of libapreq was upgraded to a 
recent CVS version, which I believe includes your patch as well.  Maybe
you should mention that in your documentation for Apache::UploadMeter.

Maybe adding a functional test suite can be incorporated post-1.0
release, since I agree that getting a decent and _portable_ one will 
not be very easy.  I really think the current CVS is stable enough to 
warrant a 1.X rating.  (In particular, I don't see anybody arguing for 
API changes anymore.)  Now that it's aparently possible to run with 
5005threads, IMO the major outstanding issue is Mac OSX support.  But 
from what little I remember about the problem, I'd be content with 
listing it as a bug until someone figures out a decent workaround for
