There's interest, sure enough. But this concurrency stuff was meant to
be a Google Summer of Code project, so someone already getting started
on (and completing a proof-of-concept for) these things leaves us in a
bit of a weird place with regard to the current Summer of Code
applicants we're sifting through.

But perhaps you can post what you've done so far, and we can take a look
at what there is, and what remains, and whether a summer-of-code student
could adapt their needed work to fill in the gaps...

As to HTTP header stuff... I had a hunch before that no one is using it
much in practice, especially since it's a newer spec. But I'd imagine
metalinker.org might; or if not, someone there could probably point you
at a test server somewhere, or something.
