I'm going to try it on my box without this patch, and with no Multiviews (to get

as well as it did in 2.0.32, great!  If not, I think we need to do better.


p.s. why do I care?  I'm working on a SpecWeb99 module for Apache 2.0.  The way
I see it working is using ap_rputs to generate a little bit of dynamic html,
then running a subrequest to send a file, then using ap_rputs to generate a
small trailer.  That would work in 2.0.32.  IMO it should also work in a GA
