I would prefer such a drastic user-level change and/or addition not
be done so close to a possible 1.3.0 release. If we do incorporate this
then we have either 2 configuration modes, which is bound to cause
confusion, or else we "hide" the Configure method by this configure
wrapper (ie: we depcreciate the use of Configure). I am not
comfortable with either solution at this stage. The reason for
the later is simply because it is assumed that Configuration
totally defines how Apache is built (maybe some external modules
depend on this), and the configure method negates that.
