Well, I have no iconv, but I tried using mod_case_filter_in.c as a test...

A very little file (500 bytes or less) posts up nicely (into upper case, as expected.)

A bit bigger file (12kb or so) hangs up the server connection entirely.

This pretty much proves (in my mind) that it's all just broke, and there will
be no ssl/tls until we can post 12kb into an input filter.

Choose mod_charset_lite, or mod_case_filter_in, either way these very simple
examples need to work before we can approach the complexity of tls/ssl and
get those right, as well.
