I totally agree here, while the GPL license virus sucks, it is
the right of the programmer to pick the details of their license
and as a user of free software it is your obligation to follow the
spirit of it.

I think we should just ask them if they mind.

People ask us about selling "value-added" versions of apache
we, surprisingly to some, usually seem to say yes.

If they do mind, we should just write our own... If it really matters that much.

I am working on a java based configTool/Server for apache
after I finish it, maybe support for a graphical makeTool could be added,
"Please *click* on the modules you would like support for..."  ;-)

or maybe working graveyard shift is damaging me more then I thought...
