the patches looks good to me. I try to compile them NT with VC 5 and will
also see if it still works on Unix.

If nobody raises an objection I commit the changes to the mod_perl cvs in
the next days.

When this is in the mod_perl cvs, I think it's time to announce it to the
mod_perl list, so people can test it with ActiveState _and_ on Unix, so we
get more feedback.
