It has been a tradition in the apache docs to keep "backward 
compatibility" within major versions.  This means that anyone using any 
version of Apache 2.0 should be able to use the docs from the website.

One option would be to add back docs for the old modules (mod_auth, 
mod_auth_dbm, etc) with just skeleton contents saying where to look for 
the docs.  Another option would be to just abandon the backward 

Another thing that is needed here is a brief writeup of the "what has
