Doing things right is always good.

In case of doubt - either revert to the Apache 1.3 situation -or- move it
out of the three.

Having results which suggest they are comparable when they are not - or
results which are comparable suggestion they are not is just a good idea
for a tool which is used widely to do exactly that.

I agree that people should not use AB that way - and use things like flood
or specweb. And that makes moving the tool out attractive.

Do not forget that apache 1.3 had a

	#define VERSION "1.3d"

living in it since 1996 - and that worked just fine. 2.0 is going to be as
good or better.
