Attribution, please.  Given the last two month's worth of press about
Web server "market share" alone, I am dubious about you '90%' figure.

I don't see this.  What patches?  All you need is a separate Configuration

The waters are getting muddy again; are your remarks about distribution
aimed at the autoconf discussion, or the dynamic module discussion?
