it's fine with me. The problem is that you cannot just tell users to 
unpack the tar in /modules, because you also have to modify /

If eventually apreq will stay a standalone package, I believe it'll have 
to be standalone for all purposes, i.e. it doesn't require httpd source. 
meaning that you've to provide your own build system. And it's a big pain.
