Code compiles on Ubuntu, assuming apache-dev, libxml2-dev, and a
	ln -s /usr/include/libxml2/libxml /usr/include/libxml

apxs2 -i -c mod_proxy_html.c
No warnings on the new functions are emitted.

I am now using it on a webserver, and will say tomorrow whether there
are any major memory leaks (A decent amount of traffic is going through

Essential Missing:
Rewriting of get & post request data.

The reason for using iconv, and not apache's iconv:
libxml already opens the iconv handle during initialization.
Might as well use it.

Standard discalimers apply.
Code is GPL, my modifications are, for WebThing's use, BSDed.

TODO list:
Add rewriting of POST/GET requests.
Add directive to set default encoding if non availible
	(once I figure out how to add directives).
Add directive to set output encoding (and convert to it)
	(once I figure out how to modify data post-processing)

Maybe make a mod_charset_libxml charset converter.
As the mod_charset_light is not working, and I am not sure I want to fix that.

  For the record, *why oh why* are we doing text munging in C/C++ ?
  As someone who coded in C a long, long time ago ,
  I find I am much more productive in various HLLs, such as Python.
  This, of course, excepts kernel code.
  I have half a mind to make a Python, Perl, or Lisp-based filter.
