  Just a quick introduction, I've been lurking on the list, compiling and
playing with the 2.0 CVS snapshots. I'm not a programmer so I can't contribute
anything in that respect (fortunately if you saw how I mangle C :-) but as
a long time Apache and mod-perl user I'm naturally interested in following
new developments.
  Anyway, hadn't planned on jumping in yet being new but as an Apache,
mod_perl user I also have to say I'd like to see some incarnation of mod_
proxy. A lot of us use a two server setup with a standard light-weight
Apache setup using mod-rewrite (or ProxyPass) and ReverseProxyPass as a
front-end for the heavy-weight Apache/mod_perl backend.

If Limbaugh is the answer, it must be a stupid question.
