Help is always welcome, but as we approach 2.2 (meaning 2.0-final), we
draw closer and closer to EOL for Apache 1.3 support.  Sure, it will
probably be still supported for security holes (considering all the very
interesting oddball architectures that aren't supported by our libtool
friends) - but will it be any more frequent than 1x to 2x a year?
Not likely :)
