The patch shouldn't be construed as anything other than alpha software.
It was made available primarily to solicit feedback from dev@httpd,
other apreq developers, as well as potential users of apreq-2 to-be.  
It was not meant to serve as a pre-release of apreq-2, and I plan to 
remove that patch soonish.

The dev@httpd feedback we got was IMO lukewarm about incorporating that
patch into the httpd distribution.  They'd be far more excited about a
filter-based implementation, and the general consensus on apreq-dev
was to follow that recommendation.  For more info, consult the August & 
September 2002 list archives at

Sorry, it's not stable at all.  It may turn out that we don't 
change much of the API, and we hope to avoid any major changes 
to it.  But I can't promise you anything about how apreq-2 will 
turn out.

That's the plan.  If you'd like to help out, stay tuned 
to the list :-).
