	I don't think it is a question of objections it is a question
of what is best for everyone involved.

	If "Apache-SSL-US" defined "Apache-SSL with RSAREF" then your
suggestion makes sense. I actually would say that "Apache-SSL-US"
defines "Apache-SSL with C2 extensions/modifications". Cygnus releases
of Apache-SSL, Apache-SSL-US can all have the -inet-0.9 appended.
	My problem with this is that the "standard" version strings
for HTTP servers is ServerName/ServerVersion. Doing that "inet" after
the "/" means that part of the "ServerName" becomes part of
"ServerVersion". Unless you consider "inet" to be part of
ServerVersion, which is a reasonable way to look at things.
