No, you understood its purpose correctly.  I have no idea what Justin
is talking about -- maybe the proxy's connection to the outbound server?
c->aborted is only set on the inbound connection when a previous write
to that connection has failed.

Setting the inbound c->aborted within a filter just to indicate
that the outbound connection has died is wrong -- it prevents
other parts of the server (that are working fine) from correctly
handling the bad gateway response.


Find another solution before the next release.  I have no objection
to such a workaround as a patch, but we don't introduce new spaghetti
code just to fix a trivial problem.
