Well, this already looks like a lot to me. You might also have to deal

If no one steps in, I would be interested although I think I am less
skilled than you so maybe other mod_lua contributors might be better.

It is also missing a way to deal with POST and multipart forms.
Functions used from util_script.c should be moved directly into
mod_lua IMO and should be corrected (used add instead of set for the

needed, but I am not as fluent in Lua as you although I am improving
