I expect that as it stands right now most 2.0 modules will compile for 2.2 
with very minor (if any) changes.  If we 'fix' 64-bit issues now, then that 
means that their modules are going to undergo massive changes.  That *will* 
affect the 2.2 uptake rate because our third parties will take a lot of time 
to get their modules 64-bit clean (if they do at all).

I still think this needs to be punted to 2.4.  It's just *way* too big.  We'll 
also have to fix up all of httpd to be 64-bit clean.  And, that's going to 
push 2.2 out even further.  This is something we should take our time on - not 
try to rush out the door and then have to go back and clean up because we 
rushed 2.2 (and APR 2.0) out the door.  No thanks.  -- justin
