Subject Re: mpm-itk and upstream Apache, once again
Date Sun, 11 Nov 2012 13:25:08 GMT
I'll have a look again "soon."

Earlier I couldn't think of a more efficient or direct mechanism that makes
sense as an API

IIRC, mpm-itk only needs to call stat() on the file to check for
permissions, and since (in the successful case) the file is about to be
opened I assume that the performance degradation is minimal.

(It has been a while since I looked at the code.)
