Looking forward to reviewing the code this week!

At the moment, I'm dubious that we are going to be able to meet the
criteria that modules built for httpd 2.4.x will continue to function
correctly without recompilation under 2.4+refactoring, but that's an
absolute requirement of our versioning promises.  In such a case, 2.6.x (or
3.0.0) would become a top priority.  So there's that to consider.

I'd like to RM a 2.5.0-alpha release on Friday 11 Sept, that would put the
mod_h2 + refactoring into the hands of bleeding edge adopters, ahead of the
ApacheCon Core in Budapest.  We make no promises about the API between
2.5.0 and 2.5.x and users are expected to recompile their modules while
working on that bleed branch.
