+    <p>Under normal circumstances, request handlers such as the
+    default handler for static files will discard the request body
+    when it is not needed by the request handler. As a result,
+    filters such as mod_include are limited to making <code>GET</code> requests
+    only when including other URLs as subrequests, even if the
+    original request was a <code>POST</code> request, as the discarded
+    request body is no longer available once filter processing is
+    taking place.</p>
+    <p>When this directive has a value greater than zero, request
+    handlers that would otherwise discard request bodies will
+    instead set the request body aside for use by filters up to
+    the maximum size specified. In the case of the mod_include
+    filter, an attempt to <code>POST</code> a request to the static
+    shtml file will cause any subrequests to be <code>POST</code>
+    requests, instead of <code>GET</code> requests as before.</p>
+    <p>This feature makes it possible to break up complex web pages and
+    web applications into small individual components, and combine
+    the components and the surrounding web page structure together
+    using <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_include.html">mod_include</a></code>.
The components can take the
+    form of CGI programs, scripted languages, or URLs reverse proxied
+    into the URL space from another server using
+    <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_proxy.html">mod_proxy</a></code>.</p>
+    <p><strong>Note:</strong> Each request set aside has to be set
+    aside in temporary RAM until the request is complete. As a result,
+    care should be taken to ensure sufficient RAM is available on the
+    server to support the intended load. Use of this directive
+    should be limited to where needed on targeted parts of your
+    URL space, and with the lowest possible value that is still big
+    enough to hold a request body.</p>
+    <p>If the request size sent by the client exceeds the maximum
+    size allocated by this directive, the server will return
+    <code>413 Request Entity Too Large</code>.</p>
+    <p>Handlers such as <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_cgi.html">mod_cgi</a></code>
that consume request
+    bodies for their own purposes rather than discard them do not take
+    this directive into account.</p>
