I see the problem.  However, don't we have the exact same problem
with the current code?  I mean, if the reported Content-Length is
too big, WE don't attempt to read any POST data.  We also give up
if we've accumulated too much data.

In the 1.3-ish past, I'd assumed that the proper course of action for 
these situations was to instruct apache to shut down the 
connection.  Otherwise (say with keepalives on) the client will
send the post data and apache will treat it as a new, malformed 
http request.
