tar of BBC module contributions, mod_firehose, firehose, mod_combine,

Over the past few years the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) has
developed a set of modules which it uses as part of its standard httpd
configuration.  The BBC would like to contribute a number of modules which are
of generic use and which could form part of the standard distribution.  Apart
from helping to fulfill the BBC's public service remit it will also allow other
eyes to improve and develop the modules if needed.

The three modules in this contribution are:
mod_firehose and firehose
mod_firehose reflects original requests over a pipe and allows them to be
recorded on demand on a remote machine which means that local disk resources
are not required.

mod_combine is an aggregator of static files such as css and javascript to
combine files of the same type and eliminate duplicates.

mod_policy is a filter to enforce policies such as cacheing rules and the
standard use of headers.

Each individual directory within the tar includes a README which should cover
the purpose and use of each module.
