How about starting the process not with a roll, but with a proposed
software configuration and feature set?

Just OTTOMH and from a quick look at trunk, I see:

   - authnz revised again
   - mod_sed
   - mod_session
   - Expression parser (I dropped the ball there but intend to
     pick it up)
   - Simple MPM status?
   - drop_privileges architecture and modules
   - status of mod_cache submodules?
   - are we going to revive mod_proxy_fcgi?

Some of that is pretty-much untested.  And then there are
not-in-trunk things some of us have in view, like lua and dtrace:
where do they stand if you start rolling willy-nilly?

+1 to that, and thanks for raising it.
