I'm not sure whether I understand that right.
Does the question refer to which exact case the 100-Continue status 
shouldn't be sent? 
--That would be in case my cgi-bin determines that the client is not 
supposed to do the HTTP PUT operation.
And I could use a mod_rewrite rule to specify the 100-Continue not to be 
sent? I guess that would apply for every connection then, and not be 
dynamically determinable from within the cgi-bin, right?

A different problem is that andybody could just use curl or whatever to do 
continuous PUT operations with nonsense content and overload the 
server that way... is there really now way how to keep that from 
Maybe with some apache module?
