Yeah, sorry, should read "kludge". It was a 1-minute-patch for Ben...

It can, no problem. But this needs more code changes which I wanted to avoid.
But feel free to make a patch for a ap_fdopen which makes Ben happy, too.  I
personally want to stay out of this issue in the following because I have no
Ultrix at hand to test and have no problem with a complaining braindead Ultrix
