I think AddVersionComponent should be removed too.
ap_add_version_compenent() is a useful API extension, but
99% of all webmaster will only add useless junk to the server string
via AddVersionComponent (IMHO).
If people need to add special tokens to a header they can already
use mod_headers and invent whatever header they like.

Just my $0.02.
