To be clear, my comment above was only tongue-in-cheek.  I know people 
actually use mod_rewrite and didn't mean it seriously.  nd's done a great job 
of channeling the spirit of RSE to get mod_rewrite usable again.

However, there may be definitely real modules that we should consider retiring 
to an 'extra' distribution.

Ideally, we should target those modules that have equivalent functionality 
offered elsewhere.  One pre-req for separating out MPMs is that we need to 
make them DSO-able...  *shrug*  -- justin
