   I think that's something we want to avoid.  (Sorry for the slow
response; I'd like to say I've been giving this deep thought but
actually I've just been distracted with other work for a bit.)

   It's also worth assuming, I think, that mod_fcgid isn't going
to be back-ported and included in the 2.2.x distribution anytime soon.

   Given that, I suppose we should look at continuing a 2.x branch
for mod_fcgid (with improved autoconf magic, obviously), at least
until a httpd 2.4.x is released with mod_fcgid in it.

   It's slightly inconvenient but I'll willing to start digging into
the autoconf stuff and generally trying to get a branch going
before we add it into httpd trunk.  How do others feel?
