------- Additional Comments From tomory+apache@gmail.com  2006-12-21 19:05 -------
For what it's worth, Jeff Trawick pointed out this behavior in comment 15 on Bug
22030, but referred to it as an "issue to solve with mod_cgi[d]..." even though
it "isn't something that many scripts have encountered...."

(See http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=22030#c15.)

I hope I'm not making too much noise about an admittedly minor issue. (After
all, servers are free to insist that scripts dispose of a big STDIN before
writing a big STDOUT -- the CGI spec doesn't forbid it.) But, as Jeff pointed
out, removing this limitation would permit some possibly interesting cgi
behavior. And besides, the product would end up being that much more robust.

Perhaps, rather than closing it as invalid, it would be more appropriate to
lower this bug's priority or change its severity to "enhancement".

If not remove the limitation, another useful resolution would be simply to
document how big "big" is for the benefit of CGI programmers.
