Ok, but I HAVE posted my 2.4.0 announce to the list and already said that we
should commit it for 1.2b5! But no response. Instead the group committed the
snprintf patches and 1.2b6 was broken. Hmmm... what should I do?

Yes, it does not look nice, so I have not done it yet. It would be better if I
would say "2.4.1 is the latest for Apache 1.1.1" and then strip out all
1.1.1-#ifdefs and put in the snprintf patch and then commit it for 1.2b7.
This would be the best this time! 

BUT THIS DOESN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM of patches to mod_rewrite from the Apache
Group without any +1 from me...
