IPv6 not working right.

Problem with ACME News downloads.  PATH_INFO interferes with the authorization.

Why is the client's IP address showing up in paths?

Fetches with numeric IP addresses and no Host: header are screwing up the
vhost code?

Have directory indexing skip files that start with dot?  Except ..?
In libhttpd.c:
+               if (*(de->d_name) == '.' && *(de->d_name+1) != '.')
+                   continue;
                namlen = NAMLEN(de);

Add comment on INDEX_NAMES that it should be simple filenames only.

The error page generated for non-local referers should include the
original URL as an active link.

Make open in mmc.c use O_NONBLOCK flag, to prevent DOS attack via
a named pipe?

Document how symlinks interact with .htpasswd - authorization is checked
on the result of the symlink, and not the origin.

SIGHUP log re-opening doesn't work if you started as root.

Change redirect to put the Refresh command in the HTTP headers, instead of
a META tag.

Add TCP_NODELAY, but after CGIs get spawned.

Add stat cache?  1 minute expiry?

Ifdef the un-close-on-exec CGI thing for Linux only.

Add keep-alives, via a new state in thttpd.c.

The special world-permissions checking is probably bogus.  For one
thing, it doesn't handle restrictive permissions on parent directories
properly.  It should probably just go away.

redirect should interpret a path with a trailing / as /index.html

ssi should change $cwd to the source document's location.

Allow .throttle files in individual directories.

Log-digesting scripts.

Config web page.
    Common errors:
	Not realizing that -c overrides CGI_PATTERN instead of augmenting it.
	Using a directory name for the -c pattern.
