      I was beginning to wonder what was up with that.

      Curious indeed.

      Yes. Incomplete, and though usable if client programs are modified, not
      as desired.

      I well realize that you are more familiar with this Apache:: code than I
      am - but I'm not an unskilled perl programmer if I say so myself. Would
      you like to bounce some ideas and thoughts back and forth, show me patches
      of what you've tried, I can take a peek and see if anything jumps out at
      me? I know that sort of thing really helps me find some problems that
      elude me in the most mysterious way. Sometimes its the most subtle
      things, as I'm sure you know!
