cPanel too... They are moving to EA4 which is Apache 2.4.

So the idea that supplemental (ie: 2.4.x->2.4.y) patches don't
have the reach or range of larger ones (2.4.x->2.6/3.0) isn't
quite accurate.

IMO, people who are comfortable with "whatever the OS provides"
aren't the ones we are talking about in the 1st place. We are
talking about real, "power" users, who want/need the latest
and greatest.

just my 2c
