I'm not suggesting we retag the httpd-2.0 tree!!!  Just provide a single tarball
for folks to jump on this module in this beta.

Why not simply tag proxy, [SAME TAG!] and add it to the tarball?  How hard
is that?

If chuck doesn't consider this proxy beta quality, then I pull my -1 back from
the tarball.  But if it's not an insane idea to simply add back in the proxy
to this tarball, then lets just do it.
