oops, I didn't read all your messages

I fear that many users of Apache would actually turn off the
Server header for no or for the wrong reasons (which may "harm" our
market share), and therefore I'm -1 on including this patch.

That sounds like the "web server with ego" argument.  Is this going to
make much more difference than netcraft catching Apache hosting parked
domain names one month and IIS the next?
