While certainly I wouldn't mind their help or code in getting
byte-range support into Apache (saves us the trouble of doing it
ourselves), I will (probably) veto introduction of such code into the
Apache distribution until the Range stuff is worked out wrt HTTP/1.1,
especially the cache validation stuff. I haven't had time to go over
all 164 pages (ack!) of the most recent draft, but it appears that
it's not all finalized yet, so I suggest we wait. I'd hate to have the
most popular web server in the world have a non-conforming
implementation of something like this. (although the maker's the of
the world's most popular web *browser* don't seem to have a problem
doing it...)
