I think so, but I really don't think we are ready for it yet.  You have
looked at the list of problems.  If nothing comes up before I get to it, I
hope to have something to help the hanging on HUP problem on the weekend.

There are lots of other things that should be fixed too.  The bug-fixing
has been going very well over the past few betas, so I think it is worth
following up on it.

Guess why they are "light years" ahead?  They have a pretty clicky
interface and fun toys that aren't "the web server" itself.  Apache never
has been for morons.   A pretty config interface wouldn't hurt though.
