    Erm, I would prefer to see it become "apache" after the current
    "apache" gets renamed.

    Like more religion. ;->  Seriously, I remember this coming up when
    we were doing the 1.2 branching.  Some people were very strongly in
    favour of branching instead of making a separate module/repository,
    and others were less violently in favour of the latter.  After being
    burnt by the branching Shinola, I was in the second group, but now
    that I have a glimmering of what's going on I think I prefer the
    first (although I wish CVS would get fixed and make the bloody tags

    I think it make sense to create a new major source module only for
    significant upheavals, like the structure reorg.  As long as we keep
    the current directory structure, I think we should keep using the
    same module for 1.3, 2.0, ...

    Just my US$.02
