Ticket #2574 (new enhancement)

Use xsendfile apache module

[mod_xsendfile  https://tn123.org/mod_xsendfile/] does exactly the same thing as the file serving part of tramline, by delegation to Apache internals.

This means a better efficiency and so much less maintainance effort. We should have used it years ago, but it's not too late. Integration is so similar that I have already made a proof of concept in less than an hour, including manual testing.

Similar systems under the xsend moniker exist for Nginx and Lighttpd. I believe that the concept originated in the latter.
