Ok, ok, we go for 1.2.3-dev now. That's enough, that's enough... ;-)

Yes, I personally make sure that it stays 1.2.3-dev now until someone
explicitly says "Ralf, now you can tag-roll-and-release the final tarball".

It still doesn't exists because up to now we never were really sure if 1.2.3

This patch from Dean was about the O(N*M) -> O(N+M) and this particular one
was not applied to APACHE_1_2_X as far as I know. Dean?
