     used to always return APR_SUCCESS, and nobody ever checked its
     return value anyway.
     [Cliff Woolley ]

  *) Remove the index into the bucket-type table from the buckets
     structure.  This has now been replaced with a pointer to the
     bucket_type.  Also add some macros to test the bucket-type.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Renamed all MODULE_EXPORT symbols to AP_MODULE_DECLARE and all symbols
     for CORE_EXPORT to AP_CORE_DECLARE (namespace protecting the wrapper)
     All _VAR_ flavors changes to _DATA to be absolutely clear.
     [William Rowe]

  *) Add support for /, //, //servername and //server/sharename
     parsing of  blocks under Win32 and OS2.
     [Tim Costello, William Rowe, Brian Harvard]

  *) Remove the function pointers from the ap_bucket type.  They have been
     replaced with a global table.  Modules are allowed to register bucket
     types and use then use those buckets.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) mod_cgid: In the handler, shut down the Unix socket (only for write)
     once we finish writing the request body to the cgi child process;
     otherwise, the client doesn't hit EOF on stdin.  Small request bodies
     worked without this change (for reasons I don't understand), but large
     ones didn't.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Remove file bucket specific information from the ap_bucket type.
     This has been moved to a file_bucket specific type that hangs off
     the data pointer in the ap_bucket type.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Input filtering now has a third argument.  This is the amount of data
     to read from lower filters.  This argument can be -1, 0, or a positive
     number.  -1 means give me all the data you have, I'll deal with it and
     let you know if I need more.  0 means give me one line and one line
     only.  A positive number means I want no more than this much data.

     Currently, only 0 and a positive number are implemented.  This allows
     us to remove the remaining field from the conn_rec structure, which
     has also been done.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Big cleanup of the input filtering.  The goal is that http_filter
     understands two conditions, headers and body.  It knows where it is
     based on c->remaining.  If c->remaining is 0, then we are in headers,
     and http_filter returns a line at a time.  If it is not 0, then we are
     in body, and http_filter returns raw data, but only up to c->remaining
     bytes.  It can return less, but never more.
     [Greg Ames, Ryan Bloom, Jeff Trawick]

  *) mod_cgi: Write all of the request body to the child, not just what
     the kernel would accept on the first write.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Back out the change that moved the brigade from the core_output_filters
     ctx to the conn_rec.  Since all requests over a given connection
     go through the same core_output_filter, the ctx pointer has the
     correct lifetime.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Fix another bug in the send_the_file() read/write loop. A partial
     send by apr_send would cause unsent data in the read buffer to
     get clobbered. Complete making send_the_file handle partial
     writes to the network.
     [Bill Stoddard]

  *) Fix a couple of type fixes to allow compilation on AIX again
     [Victor J. Orlikowski ]

  *) Fix bug in send_the_file() which causes offset to be ignored
     if there are no headers to send.
     [Bill Stoddard]

  *) Handle APR_ENOTIMPL returned from apr_sendfile in the core
     filter. Useful for supporting Windows 9* with a binary
     compiled on Windows NT.
     [Bill Stoddard]
