OK - here's my thought for 0.9.2 (not really a showstopper for this
alpha release);

   * it's supposed to be as simple as copying over an existing httpd
     source tree.  For win32, that means (minimum) you touch Apache.dsw
     and  Maybe ship those as a patch?  It's 2 small adds
     each, so even without patch.exe it isn't going to be hard to do it.
     patch -p0 < build/win32-ftp-in-tree.patch -- and you are good to go.

   * out of tree on unix requires ./configure-apxs, so add a corresponding
     configure-win.bat to configure the mod_ftp.dsp (and example mod) to
     compile against a certain APACHE tree.

Sound good?
