From the PR: "This allows for configurations where more client latency 
is allowed for established ssl connections but not for initial session 

This seems to target the same problem as mod_reqtimeout's header 
timeout, which limits the total time for receiving all request headers 
(including the initial SSL handshake). Andrew, would that fit your 
needs? If no, why not? 


PS: 2.2.x's mod_reqtimeout is buggy, use the version from trunk or 
wait for 2.2.17.
