Subject Re: cvs commit: apache/src CHANGES alloc.c alloc.h http_protocol.c http_protocol.h mod_cgi.c util_script.c util_script.h

I need Sameer's patch, or something like it, to fix another problem that
you will probably want fixed:  If a user aborts a CGI then the CGI can be
sent a kill signal early.  Current code does not allow for this ... and
Sameer's patch either already does it, or makes it easier... I've been
waiting for it :) 

It also allows people to do things like, display a part of a page, then
display search results as they arrive.  Presently these people are
required to use nph-, which is mostly broken w.r.t. HTTP/1.1.
