Indeed, i've just made a quick benchmark with httperf, and R8 is much
slower (using the same conf. file)


httperf --hog --server schultze --port 8888 --num-conn 1000 --rate 150
(150 requests sent per sec. to a  html file of 4100bytes)

R8-2001.09.24 Request rate: 63.1 req/s (15.9 ms/req)
R7B3          Request rate: 103.6 req/s (9.7 ms/req)
Apache 1.3.20 Request rate: 142.9 req/s (7.0 ms/req)
