  +* By examining the call hierarchy for the BUFF management routines,
  +  I added an "ebcdic/ascii conversion layer" which would be crossed
  +  on every puts/write/get/gets, and a conversion flag which allowed
  +  switching of the conversions on-the-fly. So it is now possible to
  +  read the header lines of a CGI-script output in EBCDIC format, and
  +  then find out that the remainder of the script's output is in
  +  ASCII (like in the output of a WWW Counter program). Likewise, the
  +  server always generates its header lines in EBCDIC (and with ASCII
  +  conversion enabled) and determines, based on the type of document
  +  being served, whether the document body (except for the chunking
  +  information, of course) is in ASCII already or is converted from
  +  EBCDIC.

   * For Text documents (MIME types text/plain, text/html etc.), an
     implicit translation to ASCII can be used, or (if the users prefer
     to store some documents in raw ASCII form for faster serving) can

  +Notes:
  +    To use the mod_auth_db functionality, you will need a working libdb.a.
  +On the system where I did the port none was available, so I ported the
  +standard db-1.85.14 with little problems. Note however that you will need
  +a working perl5 as well if you want to use Apache's dbmmanage script to
  +maintain db user databases.
