I agree, I really like making programs look correct on all platforms, so
that a Unix program looks like a Unix program, and a Windows program looks
like a Windows program.  However, we have to balance that with the idea
that if I, as an admin, have to switch between Windows and Unix, then I
don't want to have to remember where each file is on each platform.  Based
on something OtherBill said, I believe we can use lib/ for most libraries,
and just put some libraries in the bin/ directory.  The libraries in the
bin/ directory will only be required for Windows.

Config.layout is missing, but it supposedly works.  It is on my list of
things to take care of.  I am trying to port the NameVirtualHost * patch
from 1.3 to 2.0 right now.
