I have been spending some time to remove the libcurl dependency by
creating fake connection and requests. I didn't know we already have
such functionality in proxy. Can you tell me where is that code to
create fake connections/requests. I can use that code instead of
libcurl for mod_cache_requestor. having permanent solution of
apr-http-client would be even better. But we can use fake
connection/requests until we have a permanent solutions.
