This isn't how I orginally suggested it.

There is only one release of Apache, ever.

This Apache release is made up of the most recent stable releases of
httpd-core, APR, APR-util, mod_proxy, mod_tls, mod_rewrite, etc.

The maintainers of each of the above modules is responsible for making
sure the latest stable release of their individual module is available
in a central place so that the RM can roll Apache without going insane.

The users "out there" always download apache-2.x.x.tar.gz just as they
always have done, and they get all the goodies in one bundle. There is
no such thing as apache+a, or apache+b, only ever apache+everything.

Exactly, which is why they are a bad idea - too much extra work.
