I see your point... In that case I'm now keen to see httpd v2.2 go out 
the door. :)

One of the side effects of this work is that the connection pool and 
load balancing code is available to proxy_http as well as proxy_ajp, 
which means a performance boost to the HTTP proxy.

The main reason I was keen to see an RPM spec file in the official 
release was to make it easy for people to use our most recent versions 
out in the real world, instead of vendor supplied more conservative 
releases (especially releases minus the experimental modules). It would 
be cool to see packaging for Debian, or Solaris, etc added as well. This 
would make it easy for people to deploy our latest releases without 
being forced to wait for the more conservative vendors to catch up, and 
in turn get httpd 2.2 onto more servers.
