Keep it as a patch on his site, linked from the relevant places (e.g. the 
thttpd module).  He can even do it as a direct replacement to the flex 
scanner - he has my word (and Andi's) that we won't come after him or 
anything, but trust may not be too high right now.
Remember that while this is an impressive improvement, it's not all that 
useful in the vast majority of cases (it's especially useful with Apache 2.0).
