Go on! Shoot everybody in the foot. Then, while we're all hobbling about,
you can secretly switch in the C++ version of Apache you've got hiding in
your back pocket :)

By the way, I think I'm going to take advantage of some time next week
between when I stop working for C2Net and when I start school to play with
apache-nspr, and to see how the Magic Cache idea we talked about at the
core meeting last July might work with it. I've started looking at some
freely-available cache engines like Harvest, seeing if perhaps there's
code available somewhere we can use instead of writing our own.

(Unfortunately, my first choice for code, Squid, isn't usable, because
it's under the GNU GPL. But I won't open that ball of wax right now. Maybe
tomorrow *grin*).
