actually, while I still like the idea, does it make sense to broaden the
scope of the module a bit?  I had started a discussion on <IfThreaded>,
which turned into more of an <IfServerIs ...> idea could ping ap_mpm_query
and other things.  the main objection, IIRC, was that people weren't too
interested in adding more containers to core.

so, if mod_version were to be renamed to something like mod_server_attribute
(ok, too long, but I'm bad with names), then perhaps it could (eventually)
be expanded to hold not only <IfVersion> but whatever other <IfFOO> server
attributes people are intersted in.  I still think that a container which
could demark a threaded server would be valuable, even if the discussion died :)

probably not what you had in mind, though - just a thought.  if you like the
idea, though, I'd commit it as is, just with a different name - no need to
wait on other things first.
