+1. It's a good module and should be included by default.

Ugg... Should would be nice to drop inetd support. If not with 1.1 then
with what, 2.0?

Well, believe it or not, I see the 18k patch as pretty innocent. I don't
see the reason to not include it since, after all, we will _all_ hopefully
do a build of the 1.1fc before we release it. We're not talking code
changes, just name changes.

But if voted down, then does the entire patch get thrown? How about the
README stuff? Why _not_ HAVE_GMTOFF rather than HAS_GMTOFF? Does it
_really_ make sense to use HAVE_RESOURCE in a way that, as far as I know,
no other #define in used in the entire Apache code? Why _not_ pick some
fluff and lint off? Because it could break things?...

Can't _all_ patches potentially do that?
