As a mod_gzip user, I was first happy to see it included in Apache 2.0
distro, but Ryan got very valid arguments, one being that the core should
be tiny, fast and bug free.

The argument for having modules included in release is that if
they are outside, they are invisible, but on the contrary having the
modules outside core, will help modules writers be more reactive.

A clean solution could be to add a page (on site and in distro)
listing all known external modules, functionnalities provided and
of course their home page.

Apache 1.3 used to have a contrib tar.gz, it may be also another
alternative.

 I'm strongly for small core and +1 with Ryan here.
