Subject Re: Apache 1.2b7-dev performance
Date Sat, 08 Feb 1997 16:40:53 GMT

I'm beginning to wonder if we would not be better served to
make NO_LINGCLOSE the default behavior and allow lingering_close()
as an option for sites that are effected by the PUT problem it was
intended to fix. My feeling is that the PUT problem is far less
common than the need for speed.
