    Coming up in another message..

    Doesn't this fix the following (from the "No patches yet" section)?

    Um, I'll be glad to test this instanter - if I can get the patch in
    cleartext.  (My mailreader is ASCII only, and not MIME-capable.)

    And wasn't this one fixed by Randy's patch of 7/3/1997 (message ID
    <>) which clears memory for
    Listen directives?  (Committed on 10/3/1997.)

    Yup; significant progress being made here (I think).  New URL,
    though: <http://Template.Remulak.DECUS.Org:9000/>.

    I'll try to come up with a doc patch as per the first section.  The
    second is definitely a feature, what?

    I think this is fixed by Ralf's [SYNC] patch (see above).

    I recall a discussion a couple-three weeks ago about this; seems to
    me that someone came up with some changes that made 1.2bn faster
    than 1.1 in this area.  I'll see if I can find the discussion.

    I've got the original patch for bug_report.html; I'll repost it in a
    separate message.  I'll also look through the tree to see if I can
    find any other references that should be corrected, as Roy

    What *is* broken?  As a sort of divergent stream, perhaps some
    collection of things considered good for the future but not for 1.2
    should be maintained as a feature list for 2.0 (or 1.2+ <g>)?

    Would a change to mod_expires to allow "Expires{Default,ByType} none"
    (in essence, saying "don't emit an Expires: header") be considered a
    feature or a bug fix?
