Though I wouldn't want *any* WWW client to use my server as a "benchmarking
server" (possibly pestering other servers and hiding behind my server's
IP address), I think the idea is nice. And, as you propose, it can be
used offline as a HTML page generation tool. Perhaps a way to add
table attributes (border / color) would be nice?

I have had to change the calls to min() and max() to the (already
present) defines ap_min() and ap_max().

And I fixed the copyright date patch which had slipped in:

I just checked in the modified version.
