Outch... this didn't penetrate my thick skull.

I'd introduced two new Apache 2.0 directives

   -e level  ---  specific warning level for messages prior to parsing 
LogLevel, e.g. -e debug

   -E tmpfile  ---  specify initial error log file [for services and things 
with no console]

These flags rather conflict with the new Netware -e Flag...

Can we come up with some comprimize on flags so that 1.3 and 2.0 don't
start drifting?  Unfortunately, both 2.0.36 and 1.3.24 introduced the two 
different \
meanings already.

In terms of the new Netware -e meaning, it sure sounds like that feature aught
to be a default behavior, no?  It really sounds sorta of similar to either 
logging on Unix or Event logging on NT.
