I think OS distributions will play a large role in this. When the 
Solaris / Redhat / Suse / IBM / Whoever people start shipping v2.0 with 
their OS'es (which has already started happening in the case of redhat) 
adoption will be quite quick.

In addition, apache v2.0 comes with SSL + LDAP built in, where v1.3 did 
not - this will probably give people more reason to use it.
