Since it's aimed at developers, that shouldn't be any kind of a problem.
The only advantage to in-bundle is that it would get to piggyback on the
httpd source tarballs and get deployed in lots of places were curious
coders might casually come accross it. Of course, this is probably an
inapproriate waste of bytes too.

This is going to need maintaining, not much, but over time, things will
have to be changed. Not having it live in ASF svn would be a real pain.
Is PD material currently hostable on ASF infrastructure? 

I can see the ALv2 section 4 strings being annoying for some, since it
would be possible to consider any programs built out of the example a
derived work.
