We've never really settled on how we refer to it in the docs.  I find
"Apache HTTP Server" to be too long to use in some places, but it is
the official name.  You'll also find "Apache httpd" and just plain
"Apache" in some places.  I don't particularly like "Apache HTTPd".

Put the new method with a note that it is available only starting in 2.2.3.
