It is a different product.  If it were changed so that it could
be meaningfully documented as part of the HTTP server, then I'd
suggest it be moved to trunk too.

Those are all gateway interfaces *used* by an HTTP server to

modular code, like CPAN or gem, they wouldn't be part of our
core product.  But we don't, so they are (or should be).
