Indeed, all the big problems have been fixed, and what remains is a long
list of small things to optimize.  My list includes:

  * the buffering of keepalive responses < 8KB (which turns sendfile
    operations into mmap+memcpy)
  * lots of string operations in directory_walk/location_walk/file_walk
  * the code that creates and destroys a temporary brigade for each line
    in order to read the request header
  * our memory usage is a bit higher than it probably should be
  * regex comparisons in file_walk and mod_setenvif
  * mod_mime's find_ct() does too much string manipulation
  * apr_table_get (even with all the optimizations that we've already done)

Do you have additional things that you've found in your profiling?
