There's a patch in thread "mod_proxy's aside connections proposal"

Hi Eric,
Thanks for that reference!
Googling that, and looking at Yann's thread about his patch, and also the bug report that
preceded that patch, am I understanding things correctly, that the problem with NTLM is that
all the requests involved in "an" NTLM authentication have to go down the same persistent
connection (from Apache to the target (e.g., SharePoint) machine?

The thing is that I thought that I've been able to get NTLM working, proxying through Apache,
using "ProxySet keepalive=On" in a <Proxy> section, e.g.:
<Proxy http://sharepoint>ProxySet keepalive=OnSetEnv proxy-initial-not-pooled</Proxy>
So does the "same persistent connection" requirement mean that if I was doing a bunch of simultaneous
NTLM logins through the Apache (e.g., to http://sharepoint) that some of the login attempts
would kind of randomly not work (because requests not going down same connection to the SharePoint)?
