I disagree with the last sentence.  We should not complicate the configuration of the
server more than it already is to accomodate poorly written Apache 2.0 modules. Module
authors are a small group and they can learn to do the right thing.  Apache 2.0 users are
a -much- larger group and we should be more mindful of making changes that adversely
affect the users.
