I'd like to modify mod_antiloris to force a socket close and/or a
child process death when the condition is detected.  The plain-vanilla
mod_antoloris is not effective enough for my taste (I can still DoS a
server pretty damn well with my program).

Should I ask on the dev mailing list for them to help me with some
module APIs?  I tried to figure out how to force a connection close,
but I could not find it.
