Hi guys,
Well, I guess I should explain my role here. Even though originally I was 
supposed to work on FastCGI, Open Market's plans have changed and I am working 
on something completely unrelated. I still maintain the mailing list, but at 
this point I am so far away from this code that I don't think you *want* me to 
apply patches or do anything to the code for that matter. I am very sorry to 
disappoint you guys, but this is how things look right now.
If someine would like to send me complete code I would be glad to post it on 
the web site.
BTW, I didn't post the patches I just forwarded them. They were submitted from 
a non-member account and got bounced back to me.
