Here at AL quite a lot sticking with 2.2 because third-party modules which are not available
with 2.4. Like mod-perl etc.

ALPN support into 2.4.13, mod_h2 can be just "dropped in" to such a server. And distros will
have an incentive to include it.

I have not the insight to what all others reasons for migration are, not knowing enough about
the differences myself. I just want to point out that it can be one selling point among others.

real world like env to either have a story to tell - or find out what still needs to be done.

(google) or servers that focus on http2 like h2o or nghttpd. But those are not general purpose
servers, serve often only static files and sometimes even fail under load. I'm not saying
they are bad implementations (far from it), there just not in the domain as httpd.
