What about storing the original value of max_connections (from

daemon.c:          daemon->max_connections = va_arg (ap, unsigned int);
daemon.c:  daemon->max_connections = MHD_MAX_CONNECTIONS_DEFAULT;
) and calculating the difference between the current value and the
max to determine the number of active connections? That'd give us
O(1) *and* the more precise information.

There is a Subversion repo at,
you can just use 'svn diff' to create a patch and send it to the list or
to me personally (especially if it seems likely to be accepted as-is
without discussion, no need to always bother everybody).

Happy hacking!
