Thank you for the patch and for the test results.

I've applied it on my own tree but not pushed yet on trunk.

You use a new -s switch. However, 
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/en/programs/ab.html has it already 
assigned.
This was related to rudimentary https support.

*But* I don't find anything that look like that in the code or changelog 
about this.


Does any one know when/if this option was already used and where this 
rudimentary https support is ?
The only things I have is the use of port 443 if the scheme has https://.
Is there something I have missed ?


IMO, using the -s option for passing a timeout should be OK, as per the 
proposed patch, and doc should be updated accordingly.


Best regards,
CJ
