You and Kevin never answered my simple question:

    Why won't you post mod_gzip 2.0 *today*?

I asked several times, but it never got answered. I seem to recall somebody
stating it was being held, pending stability of the internal Apache APIs.
But that isn't an issue if it is to be incorporated into Apache.

Another response was "look at 1.3 and port it forwards to 2.0." Why should
that happen, when you've done the work? If you intend to contribute it, then
why the delay, making us repeat your work?

Without that simple question answered, then yes: I would think there is some
kind of hidden agenda. Avoiding that question, and not posting mod_gzip 2.0
makes it appear that you are trying to hide something.

The more conspiratorial-minded of us would simply believe this whole thread
is to create a division and weaken the voting for mod_gz. Much like
politicians will introduce a second, similar bill to confuse and divide
supporters and then crush both bills. But of course that wouldn't happen
here, now would it? :-)
