httpd, like Tomcat, is a meritocracy.  Jeff and I argued for a stable
tree and development effort not to break existing 2.0 users.  Others
argued against that.  The last round of voting our suggestion won.
Next vote that could change of course.

Just wanted to reinforce, no one individual or even group of devs
ever holds all the aces here :)
