Is there a reason why mod_userdir and mod_alias are still in use?
mod_rewrite can easily replace both modules and writing some
wrapper functions to provide backward compatibility to the userdir
and alias directives shouldn't be a problem. In fact Ralf demonstrated
that this is possible some time ago with his mod_rewrite_compat module...

If this is done for 2.0 it maybe a reasonable idea to just drop
mod_alias/mod_userdir and its directives.
