Always useful if Sander responds ;)  Bottom line: I'm not going to tag 
before we branch.
It all comes down to this:
- The auth changes _don't_ break 3rd party auth modules
- We can rename the auth modules and their directives back to their old 
  so we don't break existing 2.0 configs
- We must add implicit loading of mod_auth_basic when no auth provider
  was loaded
- AFAIK the renames don't break bin compat, everything is wrapped in stubs

So, we're ok.  We can branch right now, because the state of the tree today
is probable what we want to use as the basis for 2.1/2.2.

Once we get the auth stuff renamed and the implicit loading in place I'll
tag 2.0.44.  My guess is that this will probably happen next week somewhere.

Jeff, OtherBill, does httpd-2.0 HEAD contain anything you'd rather not see
rolled into 2.0.44 (apart from the above)?
