  Just a scratch of a start of an upgrading doc.  It would help if people
  note any changes here that will affect end-user configuration.

  <P>In order to assist folks upgrading, we maintain a document
  describing information critical to existing Apache users.  These are
  intended to be brief notes, and you should be able to find more
  information in either the <A HREF="new_features_2_0.html">New
  Features</A> document, or in the <CODE>src/CHANGES</CODE> file.
  <H3>Compile-Time Configuration Changes</H3>
  <LI>Apache now uses an <code>autoconf</code> and <code>libtool</code>
  system for configuring the build processes.  Using this system
  is similar to, but not the same as, using the APACI system in
  Apache 1.3.  Further documentation to follow.</li>
  <li>In addition to the usual selection of modules which you can
  choose to compile, Apache 2.0 has moved the main part of request
  processing into Multi-Processing-Modules (MPMs).  Documentation
  on how to select an MPM is to follow.</li>
  <H3>Run-Time Configuration Changes</H3>
  <li>The <code>CacheNegotiatedDocs</code> directive now takes
  the argument <code>on</code> or <code>off</code>.  Existing
  instances of <code>CacheNegotiatedDocs</code> should be replaced
  with <code>CachNegotiatedDocs on</code>.</li>
  <li>The <code>ErrorDocument</code> directive no longer uses a single
  quote at the beginning of the argument to indicate a text message.
  Instead, you should enclose the message in double quotes.  For
  example, existing instances of <code>ErrorDocument 403 "Some
  Message</code> should be replaced with <code>ErrorDocument 403 "Some
  Message"</code>.  As long as the second argument is not a valid URL or
  pathname, it will be treated as a text message.</li>
  <li>The <code>AccessConfig</code> and <code>ResourceConfig</code>
  directives no longer exist.  Existing instances of these directives
  can be replaced with the <code>Include</code> directive which
  has equivalent functionality.  If you were making use of the 
  default values of these directives without including them in
  the configuration files, you may need to add
  <code>Include conf/access.conf</code> and <code>Include conf/srm.conf</code>
  to your httpd.conf.</li>
  <li>The <code>ExtendedStatus</code> directive no longer exists.</li>
  <li>The <code>ServerType</code> directive no longer exists.</li>
  <li>The <code>CoreDumpDirectory</code> directive no longer exists.</li>
  <li>Many directives that were in the core server in Apache 1.3
  are now in the MPMs.</li>
  <H3>Misc Changes</H3>
  <li>The module mod_auth_digest, which was experimental in Apache 1.3
  is now a standard module.</li>
  <li>The mod_mmap_static module, which was experimental in Apache 1.3
  has been replaced with mod_file_cache.</li>
  <H3>Third Party Modules</H3>
  <p>Extensive changes were made to the server API in Apache 2.0.
  Existing modules designed for the Apache 1.3 API will <strong>not</strong>
  work in Apache 2.0 without modification.  Details to follow.
