I hereby challenge your 'technical' reason for a veto.  Unlike APR, 
httpd does not have a documented versioning system.  Therefore, I 
don't believe there is any expectation to break.  And, when we 
conducted the vote, I explicitly mentioned that we might break 
backwards compatibility - the rest of the group didn't seem to have a 
problem with that.

If someone else says your reason is technically valid, our rules 
states that the veto stands.  Fine, but I want to see someone else 
agree.  I think Greg and myself have tried to clarify FirstBill's 
misunderstanding of what changed.  -- justin
