My testing shows that connection->aborted is not being set asynchronously when the connection
is closed by the client. I need one of the following:

- Some Apache function I can call that will attempt to touch the open socket and either set
connection->aborted or return an error status so I can know it is no longer connected.


- Access to the actual socket buried somewhere in the connection structure. I can't seem to
find it. If I had that, I could test it myself.

Thanks again,
