I'd prefer that we not defer this decision to the users - we should
either enable it or don't.  But, most admins won't have enough
knowledge to know when to force flushing or not.

Without FLUSHING_BANDAID, httpd will queue up the data when Tomcat
doesn't plan on writing any more.  That's bad.

Unless/until AJP has a protocol revision, I think the code should stay
and be enabled by default.  The only 'right' fix is to correct the
buggy underlying protocol.  -- justin
