I moved it to for_Apache_1.0.2/90.keepalive.patch  and have now
added a possible replacement in 90b.keepalive.patch which adds a
httpd.conf "KeepAliveTimeout" value (default = 15s).

Seems to work a treat. The httpd_monitor show that the connection
is still open by virtue of the process staying in a running state, and
I can see the new timeout come into effect when I leave a connection
unused for > KeepAliveTimeout.

I might feel brave later and put it on a heavily used site  :-)
