Okay, 3 half-vetos equal at least one veto, so I'll roll back the changes 
made to mod_cern_meta.c and mod_auth_msql.c.  I'd like to petition for an

- if you plan on using this functionality we encourage you to give the
newer modules a test drive, and let us know of any problems.  In
particular, mod_cern_meta is now configurable per-directory, and the
configuration directives have changed.  We can not promise that the
existing configuration directives provided by the mod_cern_meta included
in the distribution will be supported in the future."

be a simple "make sure this compiles on all platforms that people are
responsible for, perhaps give it a test drive", and upon confirmation that
it does indeed compile everywhere, then I go through the release steps for
1.1 final tomorrow morning.  By tomorrow evening we have all the binary
distributions in place, and then wednesday morning we make the

I should note that I will be OFFLINE from wednesday ~11am my time until
monday afternoon (going to wash DC to visit the in-laws).  If we decide to
delay things, fine, but I can't be head-feline-shepherd until next week... 
if someone else wants that position, speak now.
