I mixed up the names, thanks for the catch.

The patch is different enough that if I was the original contributor, 
I'd say "oi, that isn't my code any more, and the person who reviewed it 
changed it, so don't blame me for their bugs".

CHANGES doesn't make distinctions about who did what to code, it just 
lists the people responsible, usually in the order of contribution.

The commit log makes a clearer distinction that the code was originally 
submitted, and then reviewed and modified by me. They do not contradict 
one another.

That's because the entire afternoon I devoted to this patch was spent 
painstakingly testing each path through the code, to make 100% sure that 
it worked both for the forward and reverse proxy case (the original 
patch didn't work in the reverse proxy case).

The original patch didn't follow the style of mod_cache at all, and I 
changed the majority of it to match. Obviously I didn't catch all of it, 
but then I prioritised whether it worked or not over and above where a 
brace was placed.

Why are you asking why?

If it's wrong, highlight it, we fix it, we move on.

Did you think I just took the patch as it was and applied it blindly to 
httpd-trunk and committed it?

The fact that you can only find issues with the style, and not with the 
functionality indicates that the afternoon's work was a success.

It's late, I'm tired and I'm off to bed. The style can be fixed tomorrow.
