Description of problem:
I've long wondered why Red Hat choose to enable every module in the default configuration for apache (who uses e.g. mod_asis?). But I'm more concerned at the choice of KeepAlive Off. What reason could you guys have for disabling this feature?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
httpd-2.0.52-12.1.ent & httpd-2.0.46-46.2.ent

How reproducible:

Sorry Joe, I should have thought this one through some more. Clearly KeepAlive
can hurt a heavily loaded server. Perhaps with a very low value of
KeepAliveTimeout (one or two seconds) then having keep-alives on is a benefit,
but probably people in a position to care would know that anyway.
