Well, just so those of you on cygwin are aware, it seems that there is a bit more work
todo before cygwin will work with httpd-test (although it serves pages by simply commenting
out the user and group directives.  I suspect that's the problem with the test framework,
as well.)  I'm jumping over to Doug's suggestion to customize the code just a bit for win32
native, as long as I have to do the work.  If anyone wants to play in cygwin, just check out
httpd-test from CVS, and go to town :)

There are enough others working dilligently in their corners of the code to get those
parts right - code I certainly don't grok (nor expect to.)  Thanks esp. Jeff, Ryan, Graham,
and the handful of others for touching new emits or breakage from my sometimes sloppy 
incremental application of these patches.  I'm doing what I can to move or touch one bit
at a time so the commits are more easily reviewed; my layering is sometimes hazerdous.
