That's beyond muy point of understanding. Everybody (every third party
shipping customized apache server) preferred t go through the pain of
maiking the user install a new server, try to merge it's changes for the
config files into the new ones provided, etc, instead of preferring to ask
the user "what version of apache are you running and on what platform" and
upon receiving the answer ship a shared object with a five-liner install
script and make adding a new, very cool apache feature a very easy task ?

You mean, there were no such vendors screaming loud about having such a
nifty feture ?

Then maybe is not such a cool thing to have, after all.
