ok, sorry for this - I'm all for the backport, but since I found few 
issues I would like to get some more testing done, and if these issues 
remain then we should solve them before the backport is done, or 
otherwise we end up again with a couple of backport fixes ...

some things though I can already now mention ...
based on the current docu:

I tried some testing, and - being a Lua newbie I might get things wrong, 
but here's what I found so far:
- banner(), port() and started() are functions (or methods), and listed 
as such below 'Built in functions'; but they are also listed as members 
of request_rec (see the big table); in addition started() gives 
certainly not seconds back but microseconds

- add_version_component() doest work for me (on NetWare) but gives:
Error: attempt to call method 'add_version_component' (a nil value)

- the sample docu for r:stat() is wrong: info.modified -> info.mtime

- I get strange time values back from r:stat() on NetWare

- r:expr(string) sample uses %{HTTP_HOST}, but that doesnt work for me

and while on env vars: any way to list all usual CGI env vars?
ok, half of them can be obtained from the request_rec, but what about 
others which are inherited from the OS? Does os.getenv() work here?

just wanted to mention what I found so far so that others can  test 
exactly these things, and either confirm or tell a 'works for me' ...

ok, onward with some more testing .....
