And then, just make the DoS distributed. You can fill the connections
again, without being the same, and taking forever to release a child.

Anyways, we can keep discussing that forever.
(And this is in the most polite way), my question wasn't about the
better way of detecting a DoS... i just want to know where should i put
a timeout cheking code. If it is possible to use a kind of filter, or
just major tweaking of apache source is needed.

I think such a feature should be present in the API, so advanced mod can
be made.
