+1 for me.

Thanks. There would need to be a Makefile in modules/ should others decide to
migrate modules there. I will do that as part of proxy work, so it's ready.

On another note, I talked to Compuserve the other day about their RPA remote
authorization scheme. They've sent me some source to make a module from; it's
not going to be too difficult. We probably will make it available (if the
legal issues aren't too sticky) as a third party module, unless Compuserve
wants to. They were interested in fastcgi too.
