Subject RFE: ap_input_mode_t as bitflags
Date Wed, 11 Aug 2004 21:16:46 GMT
I'm finding ap_input_mode_t very restrictive as a linear enum
and would like to make it an enum of bitflags.

If I put together a patch, what are the chances it will be accepted?

It is for Apache 2.1/2.2 only, because it
a) breaks binary compatibility by changing the ap_input_mode_t values
b) breaks modules that check (mode == AP_MODE_GETLINE) and the like
   instead of (mode & AP_MODE_GETLINE)
My patch would include minimal fixes for the input filters
http, proxy, and ssl.

Looking for some encouragement.  Thanks.
