it is not meant to _replace_ send_fd, re-read what i said: "interface
... just for sending files"

it is ok for Apache and APR to break backwards compat.  it is not possible
for any 1.3 based C module to run with apache-2.0 without changes.  it is
possible for a modperl 1.x based Perl module to run with modperl-2.0
without changes, which is what i'm trying to maintain.

not at all,'s send_fd is only intended for compat, which is why
it lives in  performance can come later.
