Ian, your note on apache promotion via whitepaper is well taken.  Is anyone 
aware of existing papers on the subject (specifically, advantages to using 
apache 2.0 over 1.3)? 

Two things: 

1) mod_perl 2.0 - Impact assessement on end-user and server-administrator 
upgrades to 2.x? 

2) The whole PHP issue.  At this point, is having the full support of the 
PHP development community a serious component in 2.x migrations?  I know i 
run several 2.x servers (prefork on single-CPU and a couple of dual-CPU 
entry level servers) for commercial companies which use PHP-based 
applications.  How much PHP functionality is missing with apache 2?  
Thread-safe application support only? 

And then, solicting opinion: 

How close is 2.1 to its first production GA release?  I realize that we are 
just now talking promotion to beta but taking a wild guestimate based on 
past knowledge of release promotion timeframes.... 

On a 1 to 5 scale, how important is the 2.1 release over 2.0?  What specific 
major feature upgrades does 2.1 provide that you cant do with availible 2.0 
and modules?
