Ah, that's reasonable I suppose. I had not seen any such comment on the
list, but I suppose I may have misesd it.

Anybody have any ideas on how to implement this without touching server_rec?

Don't think so. There seems to be some form of support for a variety of
different timeouts is 2.0.x, but when I last looked, I don't think there was

happy to stand corrected.
