I'm not sure this is getting the updating it needs;

I think the current state of the code is all we're going to end up with for
1.2b1 - hopefully some kind soul out there will look into it and provide a
patch after release.  Documenting it is all that really can be done now.

Anyone else want to vote on this?

Current status - we're still waiting for someone to speak up on whether it's a
major problem or not.  I don't know that area of the code well enough, though I
can't say that promotion of error code from sub-redirects has been a problem
for me personally.  Again, flag it as a known bug is probably the best we can
do here, unless someone wants to speak up.

Yes, another vote or comment would be greatly appreciated.

Another bug, since last night: Roy's claim of CGI schitzo behavior and improper
dealing with CONTENT_LENGTH.  This is a showstopper in my opinion until more
voices are heard.
