Its not currently a problem since I'm using the code in a production
enviornment (my time is paid for). Why did you refer to it as a
jumbo-patch? My modifications where limited, except for mod_cgi.c and
their I mostly added support for OS/2 REXX scripts. PERL scripts also
work properly.

Too early in what way. I've had Apache ported since 0.6.3, though it
may be to late to be included in release 1.0.

Currently the OS/2 Apache port is the fast public domain/shareware
HTTP server, and I will soon be benchmarking it against IBM's
commerical server.

SURE. Just let me know if you think and of my changes should be
rewritten to make supporting them easier.
