+APACHE AMSTERDAMN ROADMAP:                                            -*-text-*-
+
+ROADMAP DISCUSSION POINTS:
+
+    * Async IO Core, including a generic Event Loop, allowing modules and
+      protocols to register new events and when to be notified.
+    
+    
+    * Use Serf (and its Bucket/Bridage system) as the starting point 
+      for making filters, buckets and brigades work with the Async Core.
+      
+
+    * Break the 1:1 mapping of a worker to a single request.
+    
+
+    * Investigate using Syslets for functions like stat():
+        http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/2/13/142
+
+
+    * Refactor MPMs to split platform specific needs from the process 
+      and thread models.  A reasonable goal is to have one thread model
+      that runs on both unix and winnt.
+    
+
+    * Include support for Waka, once an RFC/more details are available.
+
+
+    * Build a cleaner configuration system based on an Object Model, 
+      rather than a file/specific directives.
+      
+
+    * Investigate using small scripting languages for complicated user 
+      configurable things, including Caching Rules, Rewrite Rules, and
+      AAA/Require Rules. Look at Varnish's VCL or lighttpd's mod_magnet 
+      for interesting examples:
+            <http://phk.freebsd.dk/pubs/varnish_tech.pdf>
+            <http://trac.lighttpd.net/trac/wiki/Docs:ModMagnet>
+
+
+    * Investigate providing a higher level module API, which hides the 
+      complexity of an async core. Basically, a 'simple world view' for those
+      that want to write a simple generator.
+
+
+    * Promote and include a external-process communication method in the
+      core.  This could be used to communicate with PHP, a JVM, Ruby or many
+      other things that do not wish to be run inside a highly-threaded and
+      async core.  We should optionally include a process management framework,
+      to spawn these as needed, to make configuration for server administrators
+      easier.
+
+
+    * Provide a generic IPC or Scoreboard mechinishm with an easy to use API
+      for modules and the core.
+
+
