Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] cgi_exec_info_t: detached & addrspace fields combined
Date Mon, 28 Jun 2004 09:17:31 GMT
OK, the apr_procattr_addrspace_set() interface is sufficient to solve
this problem, right?  And there's no issue with back-porting that to the
APR 0.9 branch?  The only issue is how to use that interface from
mod_cgi/the Netware MPM without requiring an httpd major MMN bump?  So
why not just overload the 'detached' field in cgi_exec_info_t inside
mod_cgi/Netware MPM?  That's should cause too much damange.

-1 on overloading apr_procattr_detach_set() to do this, that's bad API
design, and uglifying the APR API just to satisfy an httpd binary compat
requirement just seems very wrong.

If the interface in APR HEAD is sufficient to solve the problem there's
no reason why this is an APR 1.0 showstopper either.
