Well, that's the big reason I proposed this... I fear that
the async stuff will not be worked on/polished unless there
is some indication that it'll be in a released version
of Apache. My proposing a backport I'm hoping to generate
interest in that, so we can either *really* backport it
to 2.2 or "encourage" a pre-amsterdam 2.4 release.
