I know that pretty much all the changes that I've made since ApacheCon,
I've forgotten to make in 2.0, so all of those things are out of sync.

The tutorials/howtos directory is not on the 2.0 side yet.

I've been noticing some of these lately. I'm reluctant to bring them up,
because they tend to be cases where there are two very good docs on the
same subject, and people might get their toes stepped on if we were to
choose one and not the other. But, I'll try to be diplomatic. I need to
look these up again.

This sounds fun. I wish I did not have so many things going in, as I'd
like to do this one. Whoever takes this, let me know if you need help,
but I'm pretty swamped right now.

Yes, that would be very helpful. Or, alternatively, these things could
be logged in the bug tracking system.
