The problem seems to be that it is not made clear enough that the 
modules are in fact experiemental.

By taking them out of the tree you are effectively killing development 
on them, removing the option of someone taking over maintenance of the 
modules in future.

Perhaps a warning on httpd startup should be added to make it clear the 
modules are experiemental:

Warning: The perchild module is EXPERIMENTAL, please use at own risk.
