I think such a talk would be great, perhaps open an adjacent slot before
or after for a companion session.

I'd like this presentation already submitted to be a practical approach
for Apache httpd admins, though.  I can talk at a high level about the
state of ATS and Tomcat and httpd on the feature level, at the start of
my session, but would like to spend most of the time on httpd specifics.

Since you are volunteering me, I trust I can go back to you for slide
details on the feature subset of ATS?  And I should be able to round up
someone from Tomcat to do that feature slide(s).  As far as httpd, I had
already planned a couple of meta slides on features at the beginning.

Because the Configuration API talk is new material (I presented it 
ad hoc to a customer's dev teams, but not formalized yet) I'd be a bit
apprehensive about adding another full talk to my plate ahead of ACUS15.
If someone volunteers for such a new session, I'd backstop the presenter
on httpd material.  And if someone steps up, the state of TLS at Apache
is broader than the servers, Apache HTTP Client and other components
would be similarly interesting to that audience, on a feature level.
