in my opinion, the fix here is for apache to change how it does timeouts.
it currently has one timeout variable that is used for three things.
1. time from initial connection to when it gets the header
2. idle time while waiting for new data to arrive
3. total time that a CGI is allowed to run.
there are _many_ sites where this timeout needs to be set fairly large to accommodate #3, but that the timeouts for #1 and #2 could be _much_ shorter.
