Agreed. FWIW, over winter break (another two weeks), I plan to sit down
and write up a whole lot of words explaining exactly how I think the
Apache 2.0 module API should work (except for configuration;
configuration is someone else's problem). Hopefully that will spawn some
discussion and maybe even some code ;)

BTW, do the module names "apache" and "apachen" bother anyone else? Every
time I check out a new Apache tree, I always end up with the wrong one.
Methinks we should rename them "apache1.2" and "apache1.3". That way,
there is no "apache" to get confused about, and we can make an "apache2.0"
whenever we want to.
