IIS Feature Feedback
HttpServerUtility.Execute across application boundary

Imagine an IIS configuration that consists of two asp.net applications, one deployed to http://example.com/ and another deployed to http://example.com/child.
In IIS 7, HttpServerUtility.TransferRequest can be used by code in the root application to transfer control into the child application. However, TransferRequest does not return control to the calling method once the asynchronous request completes. This
prevents the calling code from being able to compose a response with its own content and content from the child application.
As a feature request, it would be nice if HttpServerUtility.Execute was able to invoke handlers in the child application and capture the response stream in a TextWriter. This is not currently possible.
