Given that he's writing C, and that 2.x is a vastly richer development
environment than 1.3, why should he even consider that?

In 1.3 days, application developers had to resort to all kinds of
add-ons, none of which are in C.  If it had had the power of the
2.0 API, we'd probably still have CGI and PHP at the bottom end,
of add-ons, but the need for backends like Tomcat would probably
never have been felt.

Suggest looking at existing modules, and reading the nicely-documented
Apache header files.
