Also, I think our current mode is an offshoot of the "old days" where
we had Apache built and tested on each specific server ourselves. In
essense, we wanted to make sure that it ran on the platforms that we
said it did. If people had new platforms, then it's possible it
would require actual code changes, but we felt that it was best doing
it that way since we could then say that "Platform XXX was officially
supported" (for whatever weight that carried). However, no matter
what, editting Configuration.tmpl and adding a few flags if needed
is all that's required in the vast majority of cases.
