Including that caveat, I'm in favour of keeping external httpd resources

If AskApache would like to contribute content - BRILLIANT! If they'd
like to have their content on the wiki, but aren't sure how to wikify
them, please, just license them right, and there are a bunch of active
contributors who'll help get them up there.

If AskApache just want extra traffic, I don't see that that's helpful or
beneficial to us, or our users.
