Problem noted- thanks for pointing it out.

That's my plan: to make apreq-2/ (for now) a *temporary* 
location for apreq-2 development.  The directory structure I 
have in mind looks something like this:


        httpd/       (server support for apreq-2)

        c/           (libapreq-2.X.X  ???)
        perl/        (stuff that should be in mod_perl-2)
        tcl/         (...)

The apreq-2 directory shouldn't have a Makefile.PL
to worry about, and I don't plan to put anything
into any of the "language" directories right now;  
just in httpd/.

We'll certainly do that at the right time.  I don't think
we're there yet, though.  IMO, the level of core support 
we can rely on for 2.x, needs to be *explicit* before then.

Based on dev@'s recent history regarding code contributions,
I see no reason to expect them to accomodate us.  "Good faith"
isn't a word I would attach to their decision regarding 
Jon Travis' HTML parser.

Alternatively, I could put cvs repository inside my apache 
home directory, but I don't know how to make that available 
through anoncvs.  Is that a possibility?
