I have been testing 2.1 in our environment.  So far, so good.  I was 
especially testing the prosy stuff (proxy, http, and balancer).  Very 
good stuff.

The event MPM is much slower in our case.

The new cache still is too slow for our needs.  With several of the 
patches I have submitted here, we get within about 10% of our in-house 
cache.  I have integrated allot of the mod_cache stuff into our in-house 
cache modules.  I suppose our own single-purpose module (reverse 
proxy/cache)will always outperform the more general stock mod_cache.

Everything else just works :)
