The HttpWorkerRequest documentation states:

... your code could create a derived class for the purpose of child-request execution within a given application in order to pass its instance to ProcessRequest. In this case, the derived class should keep a reference to the current HttpWorkerRequest and delegate most of the methods to it.

The status of this issue was just changed to "Closed (Fixed)". I'd like to test the fix. In what version of IIS7 is the bug fixed? Is the fix publicly available?

No news it looks like and its a heavily requested feature. A word from Microsoft would be nice.
