I'm not sure there's much value in this going forward (as opposed to
say 18 months ago) compared to say the doc or evangelism efforts

* The 2014 releases of RedHat, SLES, and Ubuntu have 2.4.
* There are already options for older RHEL (epel, although it doesn't
seem to be servied & RedHat Software Collections) and older Ubuntu (at

* Users who can't avail of these, or the source itself, are unlikely
to move to some even more unusual way to get httpd
