acquires different constituencies that want/need a feature relase?

Promote a v1.6.x soonish would be good for me. I have a need to teach the ap_expr parser how
to escape LDAP in order to support the ability to handle arbitrary expressions in both of
httpd's "require ldap-filter" and a proposed "require ldap-search".

Right now we support expressions in "require ldap-filter" but we don't have the ability to
escape LDAP sequences, which limits the usefulness of the feature. mod_authnz_ldap had buried
escaping in it that I missed when I tried to tease all the escaping code out of httpd, which
was a pity.
