Out of curiosity, which release had major bugs that were an embarassment?.
I thought 1.0.[35] were pretty good.

Says who?  :-)

Your concerns are perfectly reasonable but you need to consider the
history of Apache a bit more. The original purpose of Apache was to
get a httpd that did what we (the developers) wanted it to as well as
the stuff the end users want.

It'd be a shame to completely loose what remains of the original spirit
of the project. Keep the rules and protocols, but lets also keep some
slack which is ultimately kept in check by common sense and peer review.
