Pretty darned quiet - either "it's summer" or nobody feels like joining the fray
when Roy and Will go at it?

In any case, although I don't disagree with niq that almost everyone knows this

here would agree.  The clever Apache Web Server was interesting, but in the
archives that was considered/eliminated on several occasions in the past.
