I don't think the expected complexity of the two projects are similar.  If
you compare settup up pgp with setting up apache you're at least comparing
similar projects.  Building a module is an entirely different story.  And
yes they'd be right to say "Apache's API documentation sucks", and I
wouldn't disagree (I think we all agree on this one).
