I would have to agree with the above. I started trying to learn the 
module programming for 2.0. Most of what is out there assumes you are 
doing one or two things, and didn't include enough to get it all pieced 
together. I have to admit that I figured it all out from the pieces, 
but took me close to a week of comparing different modules and what 
they did to get my module to do "integrate" with apache, never mind 
actually work on its own.

I agree. Though by far don't have the knowledge to do it myself.
