Sorry for the delay in replying ... busy day today ...

I'd like to see a start on renaming (slowly) ASAP ... 1.3.0 would be nice,
and the greater the number of beta cycles prior to 1.3.0 the better.  My
thought is that given time, a gradual phase-in of distinctive and
certainly descriptive prefixes would give everyone a chance to think
through a naming scheme while trying a number of alternatives out "in
the field" as it were.  This way, Apache can have a robust API and
internal naming scheme when 2.0 is ready for its REAL WORK.

Now seems like a perfect opportunity to get the basic definitions down ...
separation of the internal and external interfaces.  I think this has
been proposed on this list.

Thanks for asking!

Take care y'all,
