A lightweight pass through the Incubator for IP vetting seems reasonable.  I 
don't think a PPMC is justified here unless we start adding a whole bunch of 
monitoring modules (but I don't think that'll happen, honestly).  The 
lightweight pass is just us (as the HTTP Server PMC) filling out some forms so 
the ASF legal butt is covered.  So, that process goes as fast (or as slow) as 
we make it.

If we decide as a group to go in that direction, certainly.

Let's see what is remaining in experimental when we start the 2.2 release 
cycle.  mod_cache will almost certainly be out of there.  ;-)  -- justin
