i wasn't allowed to deprecate mod_log_referer and mod_log_agent until
mod_log_config was able to  provide equivalent functionality.

what bothers me about this whole mess is that i don't understand
how other projects manage to have two active streams, stable and
development.  i haven't participated in any that did, so how they
accomplish it without all the backward/forward porting pain we always
have mystifies me.  we really need to come up with a set of guidelines
and methodology for this stuff, since we keep repeating the same
discussion again and again and again.
