I really appreciate that you want to take care of that, but this would only help on Unix,
on other platforms I think it's too complicated/impossible to do such protection, or...?

hmm, I feel a bit that sometimes you wanna be too perfect; I think that often ASF alpha code
is better than what others call releases, and in the httpd-2.0 alpha phase there were even
a few already using it in production...

I believe that the code becomes quicker more stable if people start using it; 
and often the user stresses the software in another way then what the developer might imagine...
