Sorry, 'jumbo' as in bigger than mine, and touching many files. (most of
my patches have been one-liners ;).

Just a gut feeling.  The patches may be stable, but Apache's design isn't
IMHO.  Heck, if one considers OS2 to be just another UNIX then it doesn't
make much difference how the patches are maintained.  In that sense 1.0.1
would be a good candidate for the OS2 stuff.
