   For 2.0 auth_ldap and mod_ldap it will probably forever remain
experimental.  There have been a lot of changes that have gone into the
2.1 version that IMO allowed it to graduate from experimental to a
standard module.  Most of these patches will never be backported to 2.0.
 In fact Josh's patch will probably not be backported (although it is
simple enough that it could be) simply because the two code bases have
become so different that it is difficult to backport anything.  In most
cases a backport is actually a rewrite.  
   For this reason, I am ++1 for any effort to get 2.1/2.2 to BETA and
released.  Even if the latest "Multiple AAA provider" discussion has to
wait for 2.4.  We need exposure for the new authnz_ldap and util_ldap
modules as well as the new auth module structure itself.

No big reason.  Though I believe a non-experimental status is accurate

now, I can understand if no one wants to rearrange any sources in

I was just reviewing the 2.0 status and the quoted portion above made
sound like this was still under consideration for 2.0.
