Apache 1.3b6 precompiled from apache.org, Win95OSR2, 64Megs RAM
Would like to see a LimitConnect directive (or something similar)
that would limit the number of concurrent connections from one IP
or host. Would like to see it work inside a <Directory> directive.

Such as:
<directory c:/apache/htdocs/photographers/freephotos/>
LimitConnect 2

This would limit the user to (2) concurrent connections in
that directory, this restricting them from downloading 
more than 2 binaries (Assuming that indexing is on... Etc.).

Also with that, the ability to give a custom error message
when limit is exceeded.
