LOL :)  Well as I said; focus is on the name of what's /repos/asf/httpd/httpd
today.  Granted, "d" might be a bit too general, but I agree with everyone
who's said that the 'next release' aught to get a broader name than just
plain old Apache HTTP Server.  Apache ++HTTP Server?  Apache Scheme[] Server?
Some wordplay with MPM (since that's by far the distinguishing characteristic
of today's httpd over all previous ones, and colors the implementation of any
protocol that's compiled into the server.)

Apache Empeem Server?
