I think that we should run the distribution release for at least 24 hours
before announcing it.  This thing is going to create enough traffic
without having real bugs (which I am sure it does).

I would vote +1 on MaxClients.  It would probably have the psycological
effect of getting set too high rather than too low which would probably
be safer.

I also plan to update whatever documentation we have on imagemaping
to cover the new tags at the last minute.  ie, when we release,
I'll go change it...

There is one other change that I would like to suggest. I wanted to
supply patches, but have been up to my ears.

After looking through config files this past weekend and thinking
about a config tool, it occurs to me that it would be nice to change
process_resource_config() to allow any number of files with .conf
extensions. (I personally would rather see it become 1 file that is
configured with a Tk program.) Just a thought....
