First off, all of the mod_wombat stuff is a module.  You can compile it 
all out.

Lua[1] is very very small, and generally fast compared to Perl, PHP or 
Python.  I really don't want to go into proving that on the mailing list 
-- if you don't want it, compile it out.

On Apreq, which this merge does _not_ include, I think we should include 
parts of it, regardless of size -- things like the parsing POST bodies 
which can get very complicated with multipart mime is not something 
module should have to figure out itself. Apreq does it right in a 
streaming parser, lets us it.
