Well, we have a bunch of cases where we leave it "undecided" when it is 
decidedly not undecided.  For example, when I configure a server to 
exlicitly not use keepalives and restrict Post requests with a Limit Post 
clause, I don't expect a POST request with a huge file upload to hit this 
ap_die code and suck in the entire POST request because something has 
decided that the keepalive state is undecided.  It's not undecided, I have 
told it that it is off and the 403 or 404 is the second big clue.

I guess what we are agreeing on here is that the logic that sets keepalive 
to 0 is faulty and that is probably where the real fix lies.
