Agreed on all points *except* that we *really* need multiple LDAP 
providers as soon as possible.  Thus if there is any way to get this 
into 2.2 that would be *very* helpful.

Well, I'd also like to see Josh's patch back in 2.0.x as we'll have to 
continue patching it into each and every Apache 2.0.x build ourselves if 
it is not merged into 2.0.x.  [I don't like leaving crashes around in 
executables we ship when they are so easily amended.]
