I took a quick look and you are maybe thinking of something else. If its 
the "ENGINE_init()" versus SSL_EXPERIMENTAL_ENGINE stuff you're referring 
to, then that's more of an underlying autoconf-level issue.

However, I did notice something else - both the httpd-2.0 and httpd-2.1 
STATUS files seem to have this comment;

    * the shmcb code should just align its memory segment rather than
      jumping through all the "safe" memcpy and memset hoops

Could this please be removed, as it makes no sense. Anyone who has read 
and understood the internals would know why. There are certainly things 
that could be done to improve the code however (and I really should find 
time to do that), but the current comment is likely to lead someone to 
doing something very painful to themselves.
