Subject votes on 1.0.2

Many thanks to Randy for pulling together the package.  Of course, this 
means that the quality of my votes is only as good as the quality of his 
build, I didn't apply these one by one.

The that Randy supplied didn't have mod_auth_anon and mod_alias_map
listed or included, by the way.  Also, the Makefile didn't have listings 
for buff.c or md5c.c, so mod_proxy wouldn't compile (well, it compiled, 
but it had a ton of unresolved symbols).  So, that needs to be fixed.  On 
with the votes and comments.

100b.os2_port.patch +1
  looks fine to me - wish we could have a little more abstraction, but oh

23a.mmap.patch 		+1
56.alias_userdir.patch +1
61a.preserve_redirect  +1
62a.escape_html.patch  +1    +1
   buff.c and md5c.c were missing from makefile - mod_proxy?
   Is this really necessary?

66.htaccess-cache      +1
68b.strftime.patch     +1
70c.LynxOS_port.patch  +1
72.mod_imap_overhaul   -1
72a.mod_imap_overhaul  -1
  Uh, my imagemaps don't work after this - in particular, relative
  URL's in map files don't appear to get expanded when sent as a redirect
  to the client (actually, aren't they supposed to be handled internally?)
  I.e., I have an entry like "circle honey.htm  286,19 380,38" and what 
  comes back is "Location: http://honey.htm". Um.....

73a.mod_actions.patch  +1
74.icons.patch	       +1
75.icons.tar.gz	       +1
76a.posix_wait4proces  +1
77.user_name.patch     +1
78.preserve_redirect   +1
  for now, but the part about "CGI must always redirect to GET" is kinda
  bogus, and should be fixed.  Redirect to GET only when given a 302 error 
  code.  301 or 303 should preserve method.

82.setsockopt_next	0
  Hmm, why not just go to what NeXT needs, instead of an ifdef?

83.timefmt.patch	-1
  Obviated by 68b.

84b.timeout.patch	+1
85.lost_conn.patch	+1
86a.scoreboard_into_lo  +1
87.rlimit_warning.patch +1
88.cookie_pstrcat.patch +1
89.minSpare.patch	+1
90g.keepalive.patch	+1
91.config_dns.patch	+1
  I'd like to see a runtime option to replace -DMAXIMUM_DNS too.

92.alias_htaccess.patch +1
93.opt_all_mv.patch	-1
  Will cause a lot of access.conf's out there to suddenly mean something
  different than they currently do.

94.httpd_monitor.patc   0
  Didn't test.  If it works for others I'm happy.

95.mod_neg.useragent	-1
  I don't understand how it works, but I know that it's not enough
  for a real solution for the problem.  I think the solution is conditional
  HTML using SGML marked sections, with a config file saying which entities
  result in "true" for which regexps of user agents.  At least, that's the
  solution I'd hold out for.  

96.hpux.RLIMIT.patch	+1
97.proxy-02		+1
  I have not tested this, but the changes it makes to the core server 
  seem to be alright.
98.errorlog.patch       +1
99.bind.patch		+1
  Not tested, but the idea is good.

apache-msql-demo.1.0.	+1
logresolve.c		+1
  put this in "support/" of course.
  It would be nice if we could provide some nice, complete logfile
  rotation and statistical analysis system
  this wouldn't be any slower in perl, would it?

  I smell creeping featuritis, but since it's a separate module I
  suppose that's allowed.  I'd like to see "Redirect", or whatever
  its successor is, allow full Perl4 regexp's, i.e.

  Translate /\/path1\/*\/object/\/path2\/\1\/object/i

  Also, this sounds petty, but the handle of the module, "map_module", is
  way too vague, it could be confused with the imagemap module or the
  content-negotiation type map modules.  Whoever builds this, please change
  the handle to something with less chance of collision.

mod_auth_anon.c		+1
mod_auth_db.c		+1
mod_auth_msql.c		+1
  I didn't compile because I don't have msql.h, but I'm willing to trust
  those who use it and say it works.  

mod_cern_meta.c		+1
mod_env.c		+1
