Personally, I've been trying my best to help Apache 2.0 hit
another beta.  =-)  But, that doesn't mean that is the only
thing I need to do.  I don't think it's a "house on fire"
issue, but I do think it is something that needs to happen.
I think it would be better overall if we get new modules in
sooner rather than later.

I do think that we need a filter that runs at the server level.
My testing with mod_gz pointed out some inconsistencies in our 
filtering model that we're ducking (see the posts about 
AddOutputFilter - wrowe hasn't replied to this yet).  At some 
point, we'll have to address it.  It'd be nice if we could 
address it with a module in our core.  =-)  -- justin
