Subject Re: Lua coroutines

Not to mention that should we opt for the Lua coroutines, this would 
also indirectly mean it would be possible to dynamically alter the HTTP 
process using custom scripts, which could be very interesting :) sort of 
like mod_lua on steroids ;). Other ways this could be used would be unit 
testing, where you could inject things into every crevice of httpd 
dynamically without having to recompile when you change the test.

With regards,
