I agree, but all I am saying is that it may take a while to remove the bad
taste that was left when we took down the machine.  :-)

Try it again today.  Last night, I discovered that we were calling the
register_hooks function twice for every module that was in an AddModule
call.  I doubt this solved your problem, but I would am curious.  :-)

No thanks are necessary, and yes, others have said it.  :-)  I work this
hard at Apache 2.0 because I have spent more than 2 years getting it done,
and I want to see it finished now.  I am also not the only person who
deserves thanks for this.  The entire group has had a large role in this
version of Apache, and I truly believe that I have learned far more from
this work then I have contributed.

Glad to hear it.  If anybody has the feeling that we got it wrong, please
speak up now, let's fix it now, not in three months.  :-)
