Well, I think now is probably the time to at least think about how we are
going to support current modules in the 2.0 framework. I'm not suggesting
we should bend over backwards to make everything 100% backward compatible,
but that we should value the work that has been done by third-party module
authors and not disregard their efforts. Forcing radical changes on module
authors could devalue them and maybe hurt the prospects of them continuing
to develop Apache API modules (and move them towards, say, ISAPI where
no-compilation is necessary to use later versions of the server).
