it sounds like it really fails the 'is actively maintained' test.
i think whether the module is useful or not is disputable, but
the lack of a maintainer doesn't appear to be. :)

i don't mean to stir up a hornet's nest with this, but something
i realized recently is that the balance of people contributing to
apache httpd development and maintenance has shifted over time from
people who actively run websites to people who develop software. i
think it has caused some interesting changes in what people consider
important. (i'm not trying to pass any judgement on those changes,
although just by bringing it up, i suspect i have.)
