Well said, Jim.

The experimental modules section of the general release has
always been the 'enticing' part of the tarball and the "You can
play too" advertisement. It is the constant reminder that Apache
had never been, is not now, and will never be FINISHED.

You need to keep everything you've got to prevent the trend of
the last few years to keep from "closing in" and losing your
ability to attract new talent into your developer pool.
