Hi Mark,

I understand your concern, and also the quantity of works to release
all the related modules (php, mod_perl...), but there is many users
who need latest Apache 2.0 since they have to use extended 
functionnalities (ie mod_deflate logs) or because some modules
need them.

The problem we encountered in mod_jk was that in 2.0.40 there is
no support for apxs -q LIBTOOL and so users couldn't built mod_jk 1.2.4
under Redhat 8.0 or 9.0 (I sent a TRICK to tomcat-dev and tomcat-user 
lists to overcome this limitation).

I get a least one mail by day from happy users for my 'alternate apache 
rpm' provided at (apache 2.0.46 with mpm).
