*shrug* I was talking to a friend the other day, and he insited that the 
feature he most wanted in Apache wasn't in one of these patches: The 
ability to wash and wax his car.

BTW, let's all thank whomever installed the FTP server on hyperreal for 
making work.

-1: Don't run OS/2, don't plan to. But more important than that,
    it doesn't patch cleany, either, but maybe I missed something. I tried
    both before and after the rest of them.

-1: Not quite. Patches and compiles fun, but...:

map: Operation not supported
httpd: Could not mmap memory

And then it dies (HP/UX 9.04) I don't like my HTTP server to just not run.

+1: More good ideas.

+1: Me, I think "make hpux" is preferable to editing a file, and typing
    "Configure", then "make".

+0: the patch against Makefile failed... but the http_monitor.c stuff
    worked. But then, I never used that anyhow.

-1: Doesn't link on my system:

/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols:

Otherwise, looks great. And I'm not too bitter about the "None of 
Alexei's code is left" comment, either.

    distribution. Would probably be lovely in contrib, though.

Well, that's it. A reminder, I'd like to build this beast. If Rob really
does mind (can never tell when he's joking or not), I'll arm-wrestle him
for it. (that is a joke, btw).

Anyhow, I think that's it. Gack. A fair number of -1s above. I'm willing 
to be talked out of them. (although the ones that make my HTTP server not 
work I probably can't be).
