So, this module right now is pretty simple.

It passes the client socket over a unix daemon socket to another 
process, and then sticks a dummy socket back into the core, so it 
doesn't close the one we passed over.

In later revisions, I've made the flushing function into a provider, so 
if you want to do something tricky, like setting a custom content type 
or sending some kind of header before handing the client off to the 
other process, you can.

Right now, it does _not_ try to pass any of the parsed information about 
the request over the socket.  I think it might be good to make this 
another provider interface, with a standard one that passes the http 
headers, ala what the perchild MPM can do.

Here is an example python script that can act as a server for this:

Run it:
$ python -p /tmp/helloworld

And in your config file:
ProxyPass /test fd:///tmp/helloworld

Comments :-) ?
