Jake, what server OS?  Iff FreeBSD >= 4.0, check out the man page
for accf_http(9).  Consider hacking Ap to use it... accept(2)
won't even see the connection until the socket is valid.  I don't
know what the timeout is, but that'll help prevent Ap from
forking just to generate 408s.


I've not used accf_http on Ap.  It seems to work well on some R&D
work that I've done, although I've not tested the stock accf_http
