It doesn't matter in the big picture, but I believe I had negative
opinion about folding it into httpd-2.0 ;)

Unless someone actually makes a distribution of httpd where pop3 is
built-in I don't see it "taking" off anyway. Once it is folded into
httpd I'm not sure I see much more work happening on it again. The
few times I had a question or a patch the pop3 list has worked fine.
If it's exposure for the module why not whip up a webpage and someone
make a binary with only auth and pop3 (If noone of the developers are
interested in this I'm sure Gunther Knauf would build one). As far as
other exposure I know Rich Bowen showed off what the pop3 module could
do at one of his talks last year.
