  +    * Ralf's and Martin's enhancement to the DSO support in Apache
  +      to be able to support DSO under mostly all SVR4-variants, too. 
  +      This would be a major milestone for Apache's DSO support. It is done by
  +      providing a Configuration.tmpl Rule which builds Apache into its own
  + while the httpd program is just a stub. This implicitly
  +      makes DSO working under SVR4 because under this platform one cannot
  +      force the linker to export global symbols (to make them available to the
  +      DSO modules). But when Apache's core itself is in a shared object these
  +      symbols _are_ available. BINGO! A nice sideeffect is that the usage of a
  + can be nice under other platforms, too. Oh, BTW: This is the
  +      trick Perl 5 already does to support DSO under SVR4, i.e. the idea is
  +      just stolen from Perl 5 because this trick is the only portable way to
  +      provide DSO support for program extensions under SVR4 ;-)
  +      Patch from Ralf is coming in the next days!
       * Ken's IndexFormat enhancement to mod_autoindex to allow
         CustomLog-like tailoring of directory listing formats
