  Modified:    .        INSTALL
  My first stab at a rewrite; I took a lot out, but some can be put back in.  I
  basically wanted to quickly make the distinction between two approaches without
  disparaging either, and solicited comments.

  -  Installing the Apache 1.3 HTTP server manually
  -  ==============================================
  +  Introduction
  +  ============
  -  If you really want to build and install Apache 1.3 manually, you can still
  -  use the Apache 1.2 way by following the instructions in the file src/INSTALL
  -  as in the past. Nothing has changed there. So when you are already familiar
  -  with this procedure or really need a very special custom configuration go
  -  for it.  
  +  Like all good things, there are two ways to configure, compile, and
  +  install Apache.  You can go for the 3-minute installation process
  +  using the APACI process described below; or, you can opt for the same
  +  mechanism used in previous versions of Apache, as described in the
  +  file 'src/INSTALL'.  Each mechanism has its benefits and drawbacks -
  +  APACI is newer and a little more raw, but it gets you up and running
  +  the least amount of time, whereas the "Configuration.tmpl" mechanism
  +  may be more familiar and give you some more flexibility to the power
  +  user.  We'd be very interested in your comments and feedback regarding
  +  each approach.
  -  On the other hand you should remember that the new Apache 1.3 Autoconf-style
  -  Interface (APACI) already is a user-friendly frontend to the old scripts (it
  -  actually uses them internally). And because APACI provides all usually
  -  needed functionality the user wants to specify, there is no longer real need
  -  to do so. Especially when it comes to the installation process: only APACI
  -  provides an out-of-the-box way of installing the _complete_ Apache package.
  -  See the file README.configure for an overview of APACI and the following
  -  description for detailed information about how to use APACI.
