As long as the conn->proxy thing is the 'other' side of the conversation
and not a dupe of the client it shouldn't matter and my concerns are
moot. The IBMHTTP conn_rec is still removing some of  the WIN32 stuff,
though, isn't it?

My real point was that if new conn_rec(s) of any description are appearing
somewhere in standard Apache then there is more chance for breakage in 
IBMHTTPD because their conn_rec is not the same. If a module is written to
reference things that are missing from conn_rec under IBMHTTPD
then that module is going to need 'ifdef IBMHTTPD' stuff in it and 
will need to know what is missing and why.

It hasn't really been an issue so far except for a few transport
layer modules I know of... but it could be.

If the changes to conn_rec for IBM_HTTPD are trivial then why
not get them posted up as a patch for the real Apache conn_rec so
there is no mystery for module writers and the chance they
might refer to things that aren't going to be there for IBMHTTPD
compile of Apache?
