Thanks.  I didn't even think of using httpd-test's perl-framework (I'm 
not really familiar with it).  I snarfed in that directory and pointed
flood at big.  Now, I think we're getting somewhere - the CPU is maxed
out.  Cool.

Well, I think with all of the benchmarks flying around, it'd be nice to
agree that "URL X, followed by URL Y, followed by URL Z" is at least
a decent coverage of httpd-2.0 code.  At least for determining relative
merits of code A vs. code B that affects the entire server.  I dunno,
it's a thought.  Right now, everybody just uses ab and points at /
or some small static file.  I think it'd be nice to standardize this

FWIW, the default httpd.conf is awful.  mod_include isn't allowed by
default anywhere (even in the manual).  That needs to be fixed.  It
took me 30 minutes to get mod_include to serve a shtml file.  Drats.
