We have two completely different pieces of software.  The fact that they 
are both called Apache is just marketing.  By saying bug fixes only in 1.3 
you are effectively telling people who want to work on it to get lost.  
There are plenty of evolutionary things that could be done in it short of 
the revolutionary jump to Apache2.  We know the jump is too big for a big 
chunk of the market but nobody seems to want to address that.
